of California's Secretary of State. You may also want to look at
our original positions on the props
- Prop 1A: Indian Self Reliance.
- Good news. It's winning.
- Prop 12: Parks and Water Bond
- Bad news. It's winning. It's not a heinous restriction on freedom,
but it is wasteful spending.
- Prop 13: Drinking Water Bond
- Bad news. It's winning. A lot of money to do very little for the
- Prop 14: Library Bonds
- Bad news. It's winning.
- Prop 15: Crime Labs Bond
- Good news. It's losing, although not by much. Might change with
move votes counted, especially absentee.
- Prop 16: Veteran's Home
- Bad news. It's winning.
- Prop 17: Lotteries and Raffles
- Good news. It's winning, so charities will have another tool for
- Prop 18: Murder, Special Circumstances
- No position. It's passing. It looks to be a pretty
straightforward clarification of a loophole in the law, whereby
identical crimes were punished differently.
- Prop 19: Peace Officers
- Bad news. It's winning, so more special treatment for civil
- Prop 20: Lottery Funds Earmarking
- Bad news. It's winning, so yet more statewide control over
schools. The margin is slim, so this may turn around.
- Prop 21: Juvenile Crime
- Bad news. Real bad. Passing by a landslide. It's only losing in a
couple of Bay Area counties.
- Prop 22: Limit on Marriage
- Bad news. The homophobes have pushed this one through by a pretty
good margin. It's winning everywhere except San Francisco.
- Prop 23: None of the Above
- Bad news. It's not passing. No idea why. I mean, how can you
- Prop 25: Campaign Finance
- Good news. It's not passing. Candidates will be force to actually
raise money, rather than taking it from the taxpayers before they are
- Prop 26: Majority Vote for Tax Hike
- Good news. It's not passing. A 2/3 majority will continue to be
- Prop 27: Term Limits Declaration
- Bad news. Not passing. Well, sort of mediocre news, because the
law wouldn't have done that much even if it had passed. Not something
to stress over.
- Prop 28: Repeal Tobacco Tax
- Bad news. You can never go wrong with a whining appeal that we
must "save the children". Failing by a big landslide.
- Prop 29: Indian Gaming
- Indifferent news. It's passing, but that's okay because it has no
effect if 1A passes, which it is. Still sort of sad that the voters
- Prop 30: Insurance Lawsuits
- No position. It's failing by a landslide.
- Prop 31: Insurance Amendments
- No position. It's failing by an even bigger landslide.
- State Assembly District 14
- Our own Dan Burton has received 5.2% of the vote, in comparison to
the Republican Udinsky receiving 13.1%. Go Dan.
- U.S. Congress District 9
- Fred Foldvary, who once spoke at a Cal Libertarians meeting, is
receiving 3.3% of the vote, in comparison to the Republican
- State Senate District 9
- James Eyer is receiving similar percentages to the other local races:
5.2% against the Republican's 13%.
- U.S. Senate
- Gail Lightfoot received more votes (76,690 as of 1am) than any other third
party candidate. The Republican race is going to Tom Campbell, who I
think most libertarians would be very pleased to see defeat Diane
