campaign arguments

Yes

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.”

No

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.

MapLight Voter's Edge is the one-stop shop for nonpartisan voter information about California ballot measures. Our voter guide provides comprehensive, up-to-date information about the November 2012 propositions, all in one place, so that you can know what you're really voting for before you head to the polls.

Note: Some ballot measure campaign committees are supporting or opposing more than one proposition, so the total amounts raised by those committees are reflected on multiple propositions. For this reason, adding contributions across propositions will double-count certain contributions. Please contact MapLight for further details.
