Prop 8 is ahead by 400,000 votes, with up to 3,000,000 absentee and provisional votes yet to be counted. Tonight there is a rally in West Hollywood in protest of Proposition 8. Please find information on both of these issues below. Please forward on this information to others. You can find information about both of these issues below, but first, it must be mentioned that Prop 8 is not about the morality of whether or not gay people should get married. Ultimately, its not really even about gay people. It's about civil rights and equality. Its about setting a precedent on rolling back civil rights that have already been granted. If Prop 8 passes, it is a blow to the American people and the American justice system for two reasons:

1. It negates the separation of church and state that is supposed to mediate law in this country. Prop 8 passing is about a certain group of people's moral codes dictating how other people should live their lives.

2. In our legal system, something is not necessarily illegal or impossible until a precedent has been set. This is the first case where a set of civil rights granted will be taken away. That would be like women and minorities rights to vote and own property being taken away by a majority vote. This, people, is a scary thing.

Proposition 8 Protest Rally & Street Closures
Wednesday, November 5th

Email From West Hollywood City Mayor Jeffrey Prang:

As deeply disappointed as we all are that California voters passed Proposition 8, we must not allow that disappointment to linger. This vote is a temporary defeat in the long march toward equal rights for all citizens in America.

Please join me for a protest rally tonight at 7 pm on San Vicente Blvd between West Hollywood Park and the Pacific Design Center (647 N. San Vicente Blvd. West Hollywood CA 90069) as we move forward towards restoring equality for all in California.

San Vicente Blvd, between Santa Monica Blvd and Melrose Avenue will be closed tonight starting at 6 pm. San Vicente south-bound traffic will be directed to make left or right at Santa Monica Blvd. Signs have already been posted to help divert traffic.

For more information about tonight's rally, please contact (323) 848-6460.



Roughly 400,000 votes separate yes from no on Prop 8 – out of 10 million votes tallied.

Based on turnout estimates reported yesterday, we expect that there are more than 3 million and possibly as many as 4 million absentee and provisional ballots yet to be counted.

Given that fundamental rights are at stake, we must wait to hear from the Secretary of State tomorrow how many votes are yet to be counted as well as where they are from.

It is clearly a very close election and we monitored the results all evening and this morning.

As of this point, the election is too close to call.

Because Prop 8 involves the sensitive matter of individual rights, we believe it is important to wait until we receive further information about the outcome.
