Ballot question: Should California be split into three states?


Western JournalOne of several proposals aiming to split California into multiple smaller states has reportedly reached an important new goal thanks in large part to the efforts of its billionaire champion.

According to a press release this week, the CAL 3 initiative surpassed the number of signatures needed to present the measure to voters in this year’s election. If state officials determine the documents are genuine, it would then qualify as an initiative to be added this November.

The answer depends heavily on how exactly the split works. It makes sense to split the state into three states with population mixes such that they are politically competitive, rather than millions of urban illegals ruling over farmers. It doesn't make sense to give the same Democrats now in power 4 more Senators from one-party states.
