November 8, 2018 (Sacramento) – California voters will continue to pay a gas tax to fund repairs of roads and bridges, after Proposition 6, a ballot measure that would have repealed the tax, failed by a 55-45% margin.
Prop 10, an effort to make it easier for cities to impose rent controls, failed by a whopping 62-38% vote.
But voters approved ending daylight savings time, passing Prop 7 by a 60-40% margin. Voters also passed Prop 1, approving bonds to fund affordable housing and housing for veterans by a 54-46% margin.
Below is a rundown on all 11 measures on the ballot (a 12th, Prop 9, was removed by a court due to constitutional concerns.)
