Proposition 8, titled the "Marriage Protection Act," is on the ballot this November. The measure would place wording in the state constitution stating that marriage is only recognized between a man and a woman in the state of California.
Proponents of marriage only between a man and a woman voted for such a law back in 2000 to the tune of 61 percent.
Earlier this year, however, California's Supreme Court voted by 4-3 to allow marraige between gays and lesbians. In doing so, California joined Massachusetts as the only states to back gay marriage.
