Prop. 40:State Senate RedistrictingApprove boundaries drawn by Citizens Redistricting Commission.
A “Yes” vote approves, and a “No” vote rejects, new State Senate districts drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. If rejected, districts will be adjusted by officials supervised by the California Supreme Court.
what your vote means
A YES vote on this measure means: The state Senate district boundaries certified by the Citizens Redistricting Commission would continue to be used.
A NO vote on this measure means: The California Supreme Court would appoint special masters to determine new state Senate district boundaries.
Yes on 40 protects the State Senate maps drawn by the voter-approved Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. Yes on 40 upholds the will of California voters to hold politicians accountable by keeping them out of the redistricting process. Good government groups, seniors, businesses and taxpayers recommend “Yes on 40.”
As sponsors of Proposition 40, our intention was to overturn the commission’s State Senate districts for 2012. However, due to the State Supreme Court’s ruling that kept these districts in place for 2012, we have suspended our campaign and no longer seek a NO vote.
