Redistricting Fight Between Election Officials

Sacramento, CA — A Sacramento Superior Court Judge has ordered election officials to remove Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger´s redistricting measure from the November ballot.

The judge ruled that supporters violated the state constitution by using two versions of the initiative in the qualifying process.

The proposal, Proposition 77, is one of three initiatives that the Republican governor is supporting in the November Eighth special election.

It would take the power to draw legislative and congressional districts away from the Legislature and give it to a panel of three retired judges.
