Insight: Capitol Chat / Prop 40 / Augusta Read Thomas / Thibault Cauvin


 
 
Proposition 40 Proposition 40 may be one of the least contentious measures on the November 6 ballot--its sponsors have withdrawn their support for the proposition. A "yes" vote would uphold the state's current redistricting plan, while a "no" vote means that districts wil be adjusted by officials supervised for the California Supreme Court. However, voters confused by Prop. 40 are likely to vote "no" when they actually support the measure--as voters often do when a list of ballot initiaves is overwhelmingly long, or the issues seem unfamiliar.
