Voters are likely coming out in such numbers to vote on a gay marriage law. If the majority of residents vote no on Question 1, a law passed this year legalizing gay marriage will be upheld. If they vote yes, it will be abolished.

A good turnout is a sign that gay marriage in the state will be upheld.
