Number of Californians Whose Minds Need Changing? 599,602

Final election results show that 599,602 more California voters cast ballots in favor of outlawing same-sex marriage than voted to keep such unions legal. The official tally certified Saturday by Secretary of State Debra Bowen has Proposition 8 passing 52.3 percent to 47.7 percent – the same spread the gay marriage ban held based on early results from the Nov. 4 election.
