California voters have passed an initiative that will give state residents the strongest online privacy protections in the world, according to the Associated Press.

Proposition 24 has received about 56% yes votes, according to the latest figures from the Secretary of State’s website.

Prop 24 will add new provisions to the landmark state law passed in 2018 that gives people more privacy over their digital data. It will also create a new state agency for its implementation and enforcement.
