Yesterday Was A Victory, Tomorrow Is A Battle Of Preservation

As of November 4th, 6:24pm, the election results for Referendum 71 are as follows:
593,956 (51.65%) Approved | 556,090 (48.35%) Rejected
That's a positive lead of 37,866 votes in support of the 'everything-but-marriage' law in Washington State.  Equality is, in fact, winning right now.  However, I sense this is far from being over.  Of the 39 counties in Washington, only nine of them [Clallam, Jefferson, San Juan, Kitsap, Thurston, King, Whatcom, Skagit, and Snohomish] consisted of a majority to approve the referendum.

I am aware of the fact that the voter population in several of those counties totals less than 20, 15, 10, and even 5 thousand people.
