Proposition 8 on this November's ballot seeks to eliminate same-sex marriage in California. It is probably the most talked about state ballot initiative within the state and nationally, yet people are still not sure what it is or what a 'yes' (eliminate gay marriage) or 'no' (keep gay marriage) vote means. One Southern California Prop 8 proponent who went door-to-door recently experienced ths first hand: "Many people are confused about Proposition 8 or do not know what it is... A number of people wanted me to clarify whether a Yes vote was "Yes on traditional marriage" or "Yes on same-sex marriage" before they gave me an answer."
