80-four precincts had reported by that time.
Last week Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley told reporters his administration had a “real shot” at getting same-sex marriage approved and praised Brad Pitt for his work on behalf of the issue.
Maryland is set to join the handful of other states that allow same-sex marriage, including New York, Washington D.C., and New Hampshire
Same-sex marriage was also at issue in Maine, Washington, and Minnesota.
