A proposal that would split California into three separate states will be on the November ballot. 

The idea comes thanks to the efforts of businessman Tim Draper who rallied enough support to get the necessary number of signatures on the petition for the measure to go on the November ballot. 

Carrying the California namesake would be six counties on the coast from Monterey south to Los Angeles.  The northern state would include San Francisco and Sacramento and would extend to the Oregon border, while the southern state would go from Fresno south to San Diego.
