Voters have passed Proposition 30, which many consider to be the biggest measure on the California ballot. Governor Jerry Brown crisscrossed the state in recent weeks making his pitch, supported by union leaders, teachers and others keen to avoid the "trigger cuts" that would have hit had Prop. 30 failed.

For many people, registration with a political party lasts a lifetime. But some people do change their political stripes. Lisa Morehouse has the story of two voters -- one Democrat, one Republican -- who, after much torment, had a change of heart.

In a tight presidential race, either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney could lose the popular vote yet still win the majority of Electoral College votes and gain the White House.

Lately they've talked about the economy, foreign policy and tax plans -- but where is religion in this presidential race? President Obama is a Christian, and Mitt Romney is a Mormon. How do their religions play into their campaigns, if at all? Does faith affect their views on controversial issues like abortion or gay marriage? And do voters really care what religion their candidate follows?

The Obama administration is facing pressure from Republicans to explain internal government e-mails, released publicly this week, which shed new light on what officials knew about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. One of the e-mails suggests that the State Department was informed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks that a terrorist group had taken credit for the killings in a Facebook post. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton downplayed the e-mails, saying that a Facebook post does not amount to evidence. We'll discuss what the e-mails reveal about the administration's handling of the incident.

There's a lot to be confused about in California's November election: mysterious funding, complicated language, unclear outcomes. And then there's Proposition 40. The so-called "orphan measure" has been abandoned by the people who put it on the ballot. And because it's a referendum, voting "yes" supports the status quo, voting "no" changes it.
