NY Republican Senator Greg Ball asked his Twitter and Facebook followers how to vote on the state’s gay marriage legislation. The majority of Ball’s Twitter followers favored the bill, while the votes were about evenly divided on Facebook.

Currently, the bill has passed the state assembly in a 80-63 vote and has the strong support of Governor Andrew Cuomo.  However, the Senate appears deadlocked on the issue, seeking at least two more Republican votes for the bill to pass.
