Overall, I have to say, the election results are nearly as good as I could have hoped, with one major blemish: California’s Proposition 8 to constitutionally define marriage as being between a man and a woman appears to be passing as the final votes are tallied. As one person on Twitter said:

The state of California has decided that our food has inalienable rights, but our fellow human beings do not. That is sad and shameful.

Apparently, however, nearly 41% of the ballots in California are absentee, which could make for some interesting results as those are tallied. See this Sacramento Bee article for details and more election-related information.
