California’s successful electoral reforms
In 2008 and 2010, California voters went to the ballot box and voted on three electoral reform measures. The reformers won all three ballots.
- Proposition 11 established the California Citizens Redistricting Commission (CCRC) and gave it the power to draw legislative districts.
- Proposition 14 established the top-two primary system.
- Proposition 20 expanded the CCRC’s mandate to include Congressional maps.
