Before the polls were closed on November 6, 2012, the Secretary of State website had declared that Prop 37 did not pass. There was over 9 million votes cast for Proposition 37 (mandatory labeling of GMO foods), but we were told Prop. 37 did not pass after about 2 million votes were counted.
As you can see, with a little more than 2 million votes counted state-wide, there’s an orange “NO” box next to Prop 37. This seems a bit premature considering the number of registered voters in the state. There was a consistent gap of about 500,000 votes between those who voted Yes and No on Prop 37. That could be one sign of voter fraud. Only time will tell. It’s up to us citizens to ask questions about the early results of Prop. 37 and why the Secretary of States website decided to claim Prop. 37 did not pass after such a small percentage of the vote had been counted.
In the 2008 Presidential Election, there were over 17 million registered voters in California. In 2012, it’s estimated there are at least 10 million registered voters in California. If these numbers are correct, and reflect the number of registered voters who actually voted, then the fact that 2 million people decided the outcome of Prop. 37 is alarming. We Are Change TV and myself have sent an email to the California Secretary of State, Debra Bowen. You can too here.
Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com got some answers. Answers that lead to more questions. “As of 2:30PM today, Thursday, November 8th, two days after the election, many votes in California remain uncounted. I tried to find out how many. It turns out that the Secretary of State of CA, responsible for elections in the state, doesn’t know. I was told all counties in California have been asked, not ordered, to report in with those figures. It’s voluntary.” You can read his full article on Prop. 37 here.
By 11:15 p.m. Pacific time in California, about five-and-a-half million votes had been tallied on the Secretary Of State website.
At 11:34 p.m., the website had the YES votes at 2,417,188 and the NO votes at 2,972,942. If there are 10 million registered voters in California then three hours after the polls closed in California, the decision had been made that Prop. 37 did not pass.
After looking at the statistics for four counties in California, Mike Adams found that “there are roughly three times as many uncounted votes as the margin of Prop 37’s defeat. And as I say, I checked the numbers in only four counties. There are 54 other counties in the state. Who knows how many votes they still need to process? So why is anyone saying Prop 37 lost?”
Their website says, “The Secretary of State’s office is comprised of nearly 500 people who are dedicated to making government more transparent and accessible in the areas of elections, business, political campaigning, legislative advocacy, and historical treasures,” so we hope the S.O.S. will provide a reasonable answer to the early conclusion that Prop. 37 failed to pass. Check back for updates on that.
This morning I sent this email to the Secretary of State.
I think most Californians are shocked that Prop 37 did not pass. But I don’t understand why after only about 2 million votes were counted (here – http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/ballot-measures/) why did this website have a “NO” next to prop 37. To me that seems a bit premature. Can you explain this for me please? Most of us are ready to move on, but this last question has stumped me. I have attached one of the photos I took with about 1% of the Precincts counted. I have more if you would like. We noticed a consistent gap between those who voted YES and NO on Prop 37.
thank you very much

Sean Ackley, Executive editor of WRC TV, also sent an email to the secretary, and included some of Mike Adams article; just in case Debra Bowen had not read the article by Adams.
In just Contra Costa County, where I live, there are around 100,000 votes still uncounted per Election officials. They have up to 28 days to fully tally all results. There is however a huge discrepancy with the votes, especially in the larger counties. Over 2 million uncounted in Southern counties alone.
Santa Clara County: 180,000 votes remain uncounted.
Orange County: 241,336 votes remain uncounted.
San Diego County: 475,000 votes remain uncounted.
LA County: 782,658 votes remain uncounted.
I believe it is more than fair to demand a full accounting of all votes, in all counties and they be counted appropriately. We will be watching the vote count all throughout the state.

Please consider emailing the Secretary of State and let her office know you have some questions about Prop. 37, and other propositions too (email@example.com). At this point, the best thing would be, as Mr. Ackley states, “to demand a full accounting of all votes, in all counties and they be counted appropriately.” This will only happen if the people of California demand it.
