More preliminary results from yesterday's Statewide Direct Primary include the failure of three propositions and one local measure.

  • Prop 15, California Fair Elections Act: 57.5% NO, 42.5% YES. Would have repealed ban on public funding of political campaigns.
  • Prop 16, Local Electricity Providers: 52.5% NO, 47.5% YES. Would have imposed a new two-thirds voter approval requirement for local public electricity providers.
  • Prop 17, Auto Insurance Pricing: 52.1% NO, 47.9% YES. Would have allowed auto insurance companies to base their prices in part on a driver's history of insurance coverage.
  • Measure E: 47.05% NO, 52.95% YES. This would have added $100 per parcel in property owners' taxes in order to generate funds to support multiple LAUSD teachers and programs.
