I’ve just heard some news that may give all of us some pause. Apparently, there may be as many as 3 million vote-by-mail & provisional ballots that haven’t been counted yet. Right now, Prop 8 is winning by 400,000 votes. Perhaps these ballots may or may not be enough to flip it, but it should give us pause.
And if that doesn’t, this should. The ACLU is preparing to file a legal challenge against the implementation of Prop 8 if it indeed passes. Why? They’ve found that the State Constitution require amendments that drastically change the Constitution (like institutionalizing discrimination) to pass the Legislature.
So pay attention to what happens in the coming weeks. The race on Prop 8 may not be over yet. (And btw, I’m back home now! Tomorrow, I’ll share with you all my good news from Nevada.)
