CA: Same-Sex Marriage Question Draws Voters

By Theresa Vargas
With same-sex marriage on the line, California voters were showing up in mass at polling places in what is expected to be a record turnout for the nation's most populous state.

The Los Angeles Times reported some scattered problems. According to Election Protection, a national non-partisan voter assistance group, the paper wrote, some ballots and voting machines arrived late or didn't work at all. Power was also temporarily disrupted at least three polling places in South Los Angeles.

Proposition 8, which would establish a state constitutional ban on gay marriage, is one of several key issues on the ballot there. Other measures call for parental notification before a minor can get an abortion, the creation of a citizen commission to draw state legislative districts and a mandate that half of the state's electrical power be generated from renewable sources by 2025.
