California to Vote on Dividing in November


For John, BLUFThere are major cultural differences amongst the various regions of California.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




The original article is from CBS New, 13 April 2018.

Here is how the article begins:

California voters may soon be asked to decide whether their state is too big and should broken into three, separate states.  Venture capitalist Tim Draper, who pushed for a six-state proposal, now has a three-state proposal called "CAL3," according to CBS San Francisco.

Draper did not have enough signatures to get his six-state measure on the California ballot in 2016.  For this new proposal, he needs 366,000 signatures.  On Thursday, he announced that he has more than 600,000 signatures.

"I'm proud to announce we've collected more than enough signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot," Draper said.

Here is The New York Times map of the proposed division of California, come the Election in November:

This would not be the first attempt to divide California.  And it shouldn't appear strange to people from Massachusetts.
