Proposition 27

Return task of redistricting to the California State Legislature (repealing Prop 11)
California Ballot Propositions - November 2nd 2010

Proposition 27 would amend the constitution by returning the authority to draw district boundaries for the State Assembly, State Senate, and Board of Equalization to the Legislature. This would reverse the effects of Proposition 11, which passed on November 4, 2008. Proposition 11 transferred authority to redraw districts from the Legislature to a legislative redistricting commission. Proposition 20, also on the November ballot, would transfer authority of congressional districts over to the redistricting commission. If both of these measures are approved by voters, the proposition receiving the greater number of “yes” votes would go into effect.

Official Election Results:

Yes: 3,736,443 [40.5%]
No: 5,468,703 [59.5%]
