Hold up, is California set to split into three seperate parts?
Share This Article:
Not only will Californians head to the polls in November to elect new congresspeople, but they will also vote on a proposition aiming to split the state into 3 parts: Northern California, California and Sothern California.The question of whether California should be split into three parts is set to be put to the vote thanks to a petition created by Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist based in Silicon Valley. Despite initially receiving upwards of 600,000 signatures in all Californian counties, a random sampling suggested that only 76% of the signatures were genuine, leaving the total at 402,468. The Californian Secretary of State, Alex Padilla, confirmed that the proposition will be featured in Novembers' ballot, which will also see voters elect new congresspeople and senators to serve in the federal government. If approved, Drapers proposition would see the Californian state legislature split into three smaller state governments. The smaller state governments would supposedly allow for state politicians to better serve regular Californians. Northern California would have 40 counties whereas central California would only have 6, including Los Angeles and Southern California would also have six counties.
