Half mast

The flag is wrapped around the pole and, therefore, not waving in the breeze. But the giant Pride flag at Castro and Market is flying at half mast this morning.

"No on 8" sent out this message this morning:

"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.".
