Early voting: Too close on major Calif. propositions

10:06 pm, Nov. 6, 2012

By John Seiler

It’s too early to call the major state initiatives. Looks like it’ll be a long night. According to the Secretary of State’s Web site, just 19.1 percent of the vote has been counted as of 10:06 pm.

So far:

Prop. 30, Gov. Brown’s tax increases: Yes 48, No 52.

Prop. 31: Budget reform that gives would take money from suburbs for failing cities: Yes 42, No 48.

Prop. 32: Reining in the immense power of the government-employee unions by limiting their ability to lift contributions from workers: Yes 48, No 52.

Prop. 33: Slightly de-regulates immensely over-regulated auto insurance industry: Yes 48, No 52.

Prop. 34: Repeal death penalty: Yes 42 No 57.

Prop. 35: Human trafficking: Yes 83, No 17.

Prop. 36: Modify three strikes: Yes 68, No 32.

Prop. 37: GMO food labeling: Yes 43, No 57.

Prop. 38: $10 billion tax increase for schools: Yes 25, No 75.

Prop. 39: $1 billion tax on out of state businesses to kill jobs in California and funnel money to the investments of initiative sponsor Thomas Steyer: Yes 59, No 41. Way to go, comatose voters.

Prop. 40: Irrelevant. Sponsors repudiated it.

It’s too early to call the close ones, especially Prop. 30, because L.A. County isn’t included in the early tallies. They’re inefficient on this as on everything else.

More as the tally unfolds.

    Early Returns Show Prop 30 Tax Hike Measure Failing

    Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to temporarily raise taxes on well-off Californians was trailing considerably in early returns Tuesday night.

    The plan, which would increase income taxes for residents making more than $250,000 per year and increase the sales tax, won just 47 percent of about 3 million votes that had been counted by about 8:45 p.m.

    Great now all CA college students just got a 5-20% tuition hike along with a cap on the number of credits per semester they can take.. (prolonging their graduation). Also elementary school kids get an extra month of summer vacation.. costing parents more in daycare and hurting the middle class further.

    Wonder dog, i hope your home value declines significantly when gangs decide to “educate” children in our neighborhood, since the LAUSD will be hobbled further by budget cuts.

    The idiot voters of Sucramento are overwhelming passing that sales tax and the Brown [email protected] tax increases are winning.

    Enjoy your sales tax increases, Katy.
