Same-Sex Marriage Vote: Today's the Big Day 

Today, the Vermont Senate and House will consider whether to override Governor Douglas' veto of the same-sex marriage bill. Shay Totten is at the Statehouse covering the proceedings on Twitter.

You can also listen to live coverage on VPR. They'll be covering the topic on Vermont Edition today, too.
