Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Equality California, which bills itself as the state's largest gay advocacy group, announced today that it will wait until 2012 to try to reverse Proposition 8 through the ballot initiative process.

Officials from the group said that after seeking advice from political consultants, pollsters and stakeholders, the group decided to focus its energy on putting the issue on the ballot during the next presidential election, when more young voters, who are more likely to support same-sex marraige, are expected to hit the polls.

The announcement follows a 100-day research, fundraising and advocacy campaign that gathered data and feedback about several proposed timelines.
