Program Note: Tune in tonight for Randi Kaye's report on Maine's Question 1 ballot issue. AC360° at 10 p.m. ET.
In Maine today, voters will decide whether or not to repeal a state law that would allow same-sex couples to marry. Both sides are expecting a razor thin margin of victory and early polling shows it’s too close to call. People from all over the country are watching out for the results, and donating money to try to influence it.
Eighty-three percent of the money for the campaign against same-sex marriage has come from the Roman Catholic Church and the Mormon-backed National Organization for Marriage. Supporters of same-sex marriage are ahead in contributions, with a great deal of support coming from individual donors in California, where activists hope to overturn Proposition 8.
The momentum is building on Twitter today. #Maine is one of the top 10 topics trending on Twitter.
