A number of U.S. states voted on controversial issues in Tuesday's general election, including same-sex marriage, abortion and affirmative action.

Initiatives that would ban same-sex marriage were approved by voters in (the western state of)California, (the southeastern state of) Florida and(the southwestern state of) Arizona. The measures would amend the constitutions in their respective states.

Arkansas voters approved a ban on the adoption of children by couples not in a legal marriage. Supporters of the measure made clear the ban was aimed at homosexuals.

Voters in(the western states of) Colorado and South Dakota rejected measures that would have criminalized abortion. The measure in Colorado would have defined life as beginning at the moment of conception, while the South Dakota initiative would have prohibited abortion except in cases of rape, incest and serious health threats to the mother.

Meanwhile, a ban on affirmative action policies based on race or gender passed in (the western state of) Nebraska,while voters in (the Pacific Northwestern state of ) Washington approved a measure allowing terminally-ill patients to commit suicide with the help of a doctor.
