Man, it looks like Silicon Valley is getting its butt kicked at the Califonia polls, with forecasted losses from former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina and the heavily tech industry supported Proposition 19, which would legalize marijuana in California. And you know what else is getting its butt kicked? CA.gov
Apparently the entire Internet is really invested in today’s California midterm election results, because the official California Secretary of State site is either down or more spotty than Twitter for the last 20 minutes. While it may appear functional to some users, any attempt to view specific results is met with the following error message:
“Due to an extremely high volume of traffic, the page you have requested is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience, please try your request again shortly.”
Internet users dying to watch the votes as they e-trickle in can catch them on CNN’s CA State Results page, where it looks like the Fiorina vs. Barbara Boxer race is the only one of the big three that is even remotely close.
