14. Those are the numbers as laid out in Prop. 11 which was passed two years ago
but the commission authority applies only to state legislative districts. What the current proposition (Prop. 20) would do is extend this untested process to Congressional districts.

There's a competing proposition (Prop. 27) which undoes the commission established by Prop. 11 and defines districting goal differently by requiring equal populations in districts as well as providing voters with the authority to reject the new boundary maps.

If both 20 and 27 pass, the one with the highest number of votes becomes law.

I'm hoping both fail.
