Backers of Proposition 8, which would ban gay marriage in California, are declaring victory, while opponents say it's still too early to concede.
With 90 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, the ban had 4,922,675 votes, or 52 percent, to 4,577,453 votes, or 48 percent, against.
Late absentee and provisional ballots meant as many as 3 million ballots were left to be counted after all precinct votes were tallied.
Similar bans passed in Florida and Arizona yesterday.
