Proposition 40 focuses on redrawing district lines for State Senate districts. A “yes” vote on this veto referendum is a vote to keep the work of the California Citizens Redistricting Commission. A “no” vote is a vote to overturn the commission’s lines. The sponsors who put this on the ballot are also its opponents, or were until they withdrew their opposition. Sponsors of Proposition 40 announced on July 12, 2012 that they are throwing in the towel and will not campaign against the referendum. Even so, Proposition 40 remains on the ballot.
