June 6, 2018 (San Diego) – California voters, by strong margins, approved four ballot initiatives on yesterday’s ballot, with only Prop 70 failing to win passage.

Proposition 68, a natural resources bond, won with 56% of the vote.

Proposition 69, a bill limiting use of transportation revenues, took a commanding 80% of the votes.

Proposition 70, which would have required a two-thirds vote of the Legislature for expenditures on cap and trade funds in the greenhouse gas reduction reserve, failed, getting only 36% of the vote. 

Proposition 71, which makes ballot measures take effect five days later than at present, won approval from nearly 77% of voters.

Proposition 72, property tax relief for construction of rain-capture systems, got 83%.

These are statewide results from the California Secretary of State’s office with 100% of precincts reporting but late mail-in and provisional ballots remaining to be counted.
