California props 2022 election results

Proposition 1 - PROJECTED TO PASS

Even though abortion is legal in California, Prop. 1 will amend California's constitution to say that the state would not be allowed to interfere with or deny a person's right to abortion or contraceptives.

Proposition 26 and 27 PROJECTED TO FAIL

Competing measures to allow sports gambling in California have lost big despite the most expensive ballot questions races in U.S. history. The dueling measures would have allowed either sports betting at tribal casinos and horse tracks or on mobile devices and online. But California voters did not want a piece of that action. The amount raised more than doubled what Uber, Lyft and other app-based ride and delivery services spent in 2020 to prevent drivers from becoming employees.

A proposition that would allow online and mobile sports betting was failing by more than a 3-to-1 margin in early returns Tuesday. Another measure that would allow sports wagering at Native American casinos and horse tracks was trailing by about 30 percentage points.

Proposition 28 - PROJECTED TO PASS

Proposition 28 promises to bring arts and music programs to every public school and cost taxpayers nothing.

Proposition 29 - PROJECTED TO FAIL

For the third time in three straight elections, California voters appear to have rejected a ballot measure that would have mandated major changes to the operations of dialysis clinics that provide life-saving care to 80,000 people with kidney failure. The measure is projected to fail, according to AP.

Proposition 30 - PROJECTED TO FAIL

California's wealthiest residents won't see a tax increase after voters rejected a measure Tuesday that would have boosted rates on incomes above $2 million to help put more electric cars on the roads.

Proposition 30s projected defeat marks a win for Gov. Gavin Newsom, who campaigned against it despite his administration's moves to ban the sale of most new gas-powered cars next decade. He branded it a taxpayer-funded giveaway to rideshare companies, which under California regulations must ensure nearly all trips booked through their services are zero-emission by 2030. The rideshare company Lyft supplied most of the "yes" campaign's funding.

Proposition 31 - PROJECTED TO PASS

California voters have approved of a law that would ban flavored tobacco products such as menthol cigarettes and strawberry gummy vaping juice. Voters on Tuesday decided to let the law go into effect after a campaign by tobacco companies got it on the ballot.
