A new analysis of independent exit polls conducted in L.A. County at the November 2008 election indicates significant likelihood that the official vote counts are incorrect. It is indeed possible that the California state constitution was amended to strip marriage rights of some of the state’s people as a result of vote counts that were incorrect and possibly even fraudulent.
A “no” vote for Prop 8 meant that you wanted marriage equality. In some places in Los Angeles, the difference between the official vote totals and this study were a not so alarming 2%, but in other places they approached a shocking 18%. Just to clarify, this study is saying that in some places the actual votes that people cast differed from what was recorded by the state by nearly 18%. And Prop 8 passed by a margin of less than 5% of the vote.
