A plan to divide California into three separate states will be put to voters in November's mid-term elections after securing enough signatures to be put on the ballot.
The latest proposal for splitting up the Golden State is backed by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Timothy Draper.
According to CNN, the initiative claims it can solve California's most pressing issues, including the state's failing school systems, high taxes, deteriorating infrastructure and strained government.
"Northern California" would stretch from the Bay Area to Oregon.
If it were to pass, San Luis Obispo County and the rest of the Central Coast would retain the name California under the proposal, which would also include Monterey, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Benito and Ventura counties.
What do you think of the proposal?
California's 168-year run of being a single-state could come to an end this November. There the measure would face an uphill battle, given that it effectively gives present-day California an additional four Senate seats and would end the Democratic lock of a state with 55 electoral votes.
"This milestone is a testament to the energized spirit of Californians wanting to create a better future for themselves and their communities", said Citizens for Cal 3 spokeswoman Peggy Grande. He's since updated it to include Tulare County as part of Southern California.
Adding the proposal to the ballot is the first in a long number of steps that would be required to actually split the country's largest state.
As he did when he pushed a failed initiative to break the state into six states, Draper saysCalifornia as it now exists is simply too large to be governed effectively. But the Russia-based leader of that campaign backed off.
