Where are each of the proposals

November 9, 5:35 a.m.

There are no tight races in The list of California proposals. With 94.5% of precincts reporting at least some results as of 5 a.m. Wednesday, virtually every race is decided. Here’s where things stand for each proposal:

Proposal 1which codifies the constitutional right to abortion and access to contraceptives in California, passes by a margin of 65.2% to 34.8%.
Proposal 26which would legalize sports betting on tribal lands, won a negative vote of 70.1% of voters.
Proposal 27, which would legalize online sports betting, does even worse. Nearly 84% of voters reject it.
Proposition 28which would fund public school arts and music programs, got a yes vote from 61.6% of voters.
Proposal 29, which would add additional regulation to dialysis clinics, loses. Nearly 70% of the votes counted were from the “no” camp.
Proposition 30, which would add a tax to fund electric vehicles, is the race closest to the pack. So far, 41% voted yes and 59% voted no.
Proposal 31which would extend the ban on certain flavored tobacco products, is on course to pass with 62.4% of voters voting yes.

According to California Target Book research director Rob Pyers, Prop 27’s beating could be one for the record books.

“California’s Prop 27 hovers around 84% no, which would rank it the sixth-worst blowout for a ballot question in over a century of initiatives,” Pyers said on Twitter.

San Franciscans back 2 crucial ballot measures

November 8, 10:39 p.m.

San Francisco voters opted for a car-free John F. Kennedy Drive and municipal elections in even-numbered years only, according to projections from the San Francisco Chronicle. (SFGATE and the San Francisco Chronicle are both owned by Hearst but operate independently of each other.)

Projections show a majority of voters approved Proposition J, which upholds the Board of Supervisors’ April vote to open JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park to foot traffic rather than car traffic. Voters also rejected Proposition I, which was essentially the opposite concept, in that it would have allowed cars to return to part of the Great Highway and JFK Drive.

Proposition H, which moves municipal elections to even years in an effort to increase voter turnout, also won support from San Franciscans. The Mayor of London Breed had previously denounced the idea of ​​the ballot measure as a power grab by a “group of democratic socialists”, but his calls were apparently rejected at the polls. Ironically, the passage from Prop. H guarantees Breed another year in office, as his next election will be in 2024, instead of 2023.

No surprises in the results of the early ballot measures

November 8, 9:35 p.m.

When the first statewide results began to trickle Tuesday night, there were no surprises on any of the ballot metrics. At 9 p.m., both sportsplay metrics – Propositions 26 and 27 – were losing, with 27 losing by an extremely wide margin of almost 70 percentage points.

Proposition 1, which would enshrine abortion rights in the state, led by more than 30 percentage points. Propositions 28, funding K-12 art, and 31, banning flavored nicotine, were the only races to be called by our sister site the San Francisco Chronicle, with “yes” winning both.

The state’s only competitive ballot measure — Proposition 30, a tax hike on high-income earners to pay for climate programs — was down 14 percentage points as of 9:35 p.m.

About a third of the state’s precincts report, so the numbers will shift overnight.

Editor’s Note: This update has been amended to correct the proposal number for the K-12 Arts funding measure.

Gavin Newsom backs Democratic Party critics

November 8, 3:30 p.m.

After voting in Sacramento, California Governor Gavin Newsom responded to comments made by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar over the weekend.

Newsom has made national headlines in recent months for repeatedly saying that Democrats are losing the messaging battle to Republicans. During an interview on CBS last week, he said, “This is about my fundamental grievance with my goddamn party. We are crushed by the narrative” and “We are going to have to do better in terms of attack and stop being on the damn defense.

Klobuchar fired back, saying of Newsom, “He’s over there in California right now, and I’m here and I’ve been all over Ohio with Tim Ryan, in Pennsylvania with John Fetterman, with Mandela Barnes in Wisconsin and Cheri Beasley in North Carolina. I think either we’re ahead in these races or we’re within striking distance” and “He can talk all he wants there. I’m in the middle of it.

When asked by reporters on Tuesday to respond, Newsom said, “I look forward to tonight’s results, and I’ve been very committed to the Democratic Party over many, many years advocating for many cultural issues. . And I think we have to go on the attack, and I’ve been very clear about that.

Newsom also discussed his priorities in a second term, Proposition 1 and more. You can watch his full remarks on KCRA’s Twitter.

California’s statewide races offer little intrigue

Nov. 8, 3 p.m.

California’s statewide elections offer little intriguing this year, according to the final poll from UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies.

It’s not uncommon for California gubernatorial and Senate races that pit a Democrat against a Republican to be uncompetitive in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1 and when the tag ” R” is a non-starter for many grassroots California Democrats disgusted with the National Republican Party. In addition, the results of the marquee voting measures also look disappointing. You can learn more about SFGATE.
