Update: California Voters Pass Gay Marriage Ban

After a morning of uncertainty it has been confirmed that California has passed Prop 8, which would change the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

The ban had 5,125,752 votes, or 52 percent, while there were 4,725,313 votes, or 48 percent, opposed.

California legalized gay marriage earlier this year, but the constitutional amendment will limit marriage to heterosexual couples. Similar bans have been set in 27 states, but none of those states had previously legalized marriage. Update: Opponents have already filed suit in an attempt to stop the measure from taking effect.
