2. California Proposition 40, Referendum on the State Senate Redistricting Plan (2012)

Proposition 40, a Referendum on the State Senate Redistricting Plan, is on California's November 6, 2012 ballot as a veto referendum.

Proposition 40 is an attempt to use California's veto referendum process to nullify the California State Senate redistricting plan approved by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission.

Note: A "yes" vote on this veto referendum is a vote to maintain intact the work of the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, while a "no" vote is a vote to overturn the commission's lines. The sponsors who put this on the ballot are thus its opponents, or were until they withdrew their opposition. Sponsors/opponents of Proposition 40 announced on July 12 that they are throwing in the towel and will not campaign against the referendum. Proposition 40 will remain on the ballot, however.

A separate referendum, the Referendum on California's U.S. Congressional District Boundaries Plan, was also filed but signatures were not submitted to qualify it for the ballot.

In January 2012, the California Supreme Court ruled that the State Senate redistricting maps generated by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission pursuant to 2008's Proposition 11 must be used throughout the elections of 2012.

Confusing, no? This is one reason I'm not a fan of Propositions in general. I'm a Yes vote on this one, though. ~ pinto
