Marriage Equality in the state of Washington

I’m proud to be a citizen of one of the first states to pass a Marriage Equality act (Referendum Measure No. 74 in Washington).

70% of the ballots in the state have now been tallied, and Referendum 74 is currently ahead by about 6 percentage points (53% to 47%). 

There are a little over 370,000 more ballots to count, but 133,000 of those are from the largest and most liberal county in the state: King county (where I live), and King county is approving 74 by a large margin (about 66% to 34%), so the Seattle Times is right to call 74 as being “approved”.
========================
Update  11/21/12:  Less than 80,000 ballots left to tally.  Here is the score:

Approved
1,652,306        53.66%
Rejected
1,426,742        46.34%
Total Votes
