In what most called a "nail-biting" election, voters ultimately approved the Maine Same-Sex Marriage People's Veto and overturned the governor-approved legislation that authorized same-sex marriage in Maine. However, other measures on the Maine ballot were predictable within the first few hours of reporting despite earlier polls that predicted a close race. Both tax-cutting measures were resoundingly rejected by voters on Tuesday. Question 2, the auto excise tax repeal, received only 26% of the vote, while Question 4, TABOR 2, lost with only 40% of the vote.
