News Alert!!: California: Measure to split California into 3 separate states will be placed on the election ballot in November 2018.

A measure to split California into 3 separate states will be placed on the election ballot in November 2018.

According to the California Secretary of State, the measure named “Division Of California Into Three States” has reached enough signatures to qualify for the election ballot.

The measure backed by Tim Draper has hit nearly 420,000 valid or projected to be valid signatures in the random sample, topping the 365,000 needed to qualify.

The measure calls for 3 states to be formed; Northern California, roughly the Bay Area to the Oregon border; California, which would include 6 coastal counties, including Los Angeles, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura; and Southern California, which would go from Fresno to San Diego, excluding those 6 coastal counties.

**** The following is a list breaking down the counties in each region in the 3 states: ****

** Northern California: **

  • Alameda
  • Alpine
  • Amador
  • Butte
  • Calaveras
  • Colusa,
  • Contra Costa

The completion of the 3 state split of California measure plan — far from certain, given its many hurdles at judicial, state and federal levels — would make history, and would be the first division of an existing United States of America state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863.
