Brake light always on

I've had my '82 GL 500 for a few years and have done quite a bit of work on it, but not much electrical. I've been riding quite a bit lately, and just noticed yesterday that my brake lights are staying on all the time. The brakes seem to be working fine, although I do need to deal with a bit of a dragging front brake. That wouldn't affect the brake light, wold it? Is there a switch stuck somewhere? Any ideas on where to start? I appreciate any help you can give.Thanks!

Odd. I wonder why honda put the cx on the left and the gl on the right.

On my 79CX500C, it is on the Left rear, but seems to be closer and more exposed to road spray & the elements...maybe it is on the right, up higher, and tucked in more to keep it drier/cleaner?
