Prop 8
NPR was stating this morning that Secretary of State Debra Bowden has said that there are still 2-3 million absentee and provisional ballots left to be counted. Prop 8 only has a 500,000 lead right now. While that doesn't mean it can be changed to no, there's a chance.

The counties have until December 9th (or so NPR said) to finish counting and give the results to the state.

Sadly, I think it's screwed - because I'd be willing to bet those absentee ballots are still made up of the same general percentages of the electorate - in this case black women who go to church and seem to think that it's okay to subjugate another group to the same standard of 'Separate but equal' that this country struggled with during the civil rights movement.

Aren't the vast majority of absentee ballots cast by (famously conservative) military personnel?

Typically. This election they're a bit weirder because of how much the Obama campaign stressed early voting and other alternatives to prevent poll location shenanigans.

Not in California. In many other states absentee is a privilege, not a right, and it's mostly college students & military. In California, it's a right and I know a lot of people who voted absentee rather than go to the polls.

They've been pushing it heavily out here and shut down many polling areas due to high numbers of people doing absentee ballots.
