The Boy Scouts of America is holding an important vote this morning.
At issue is whether to allow openly gay scouts.
More than 1,400 scout leaders from across the country will vote in a secret ballot.
They will not be voting to lift the ban on gay scout leaders.
The organization is holding its national annual meeting in Texas this week, and groups aligned with each side have been making their voices heard.
