Maryland Election 2012: Question 6 Could Overshadow Presidential & Senate Races (LIVE UPDATES)

In the Maryland election, it's possible that Question 6 -- a measure that would uphold the state's marriage equality law signed earlier this year -- could steal the show on Tuesday.

Barack Obama is expected to secure an easy win for Maryland's 10 electoral votes over Mitt Romney. Democratic incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin is expected to defeat Republican rival Dan Bongino on Election Night.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Mally, who signed his state's gay marriage law in March, released an ad in support of the measure over the weekend.

He tells voters in the spot that "the truth is very simple" and explains, "Question 6 treats everyone equally under the law, and fairly. It allows 2 adults to commit to someone they love. That's it. No one is forced to do anything. And there are strong religious freedom protections for people of all faiths."

Voters in Maryland can have their voices heard at the polls between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday.
