MAINE (AP) -- Maine and Maryland are the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote.

The outcomes broke a 32-state streak, dating to 1998, with gay marriage rebuffed by every state that voted on it.

Gay marriage is legal in six states and the District of Columbia - in each case the result of legislation or court orders, not by a vote of the people.

Minnesota was voting on a proposal to ban gay marriage in the state constitution. That race, with 75% of precints reporting, is split down the middle with 50% voting yes and 50% voting no.
