California Proposition 11 was on the June 8, 1982 statewide primary ballot in California as a veto referendum, where it was defeated.

Proposition 11 was a statewide vote about whether to approve or reject the California State Senate redistricting law adopted in 1981 by the California State Legislature.

If Proposition 11 had been approved, the California State Senate districts established by the legislature would have remained unchanged until 1991.

Since Proposition 11 was defeated, the state senate districts set by the legislature in 1981 were only used for the primary and general elections in 1982. In 1983, the Legislature was required to adopt new boundaries.

Ballot summary

Proposition 11's official ballot summary said:

"A "yes" vote approves, a "no" vote rejects, a statute (Chapter 536) enacted by 1981 Legislature revising the boundaries of the 40 Senate districts and adopting provisions imposing time and other limitations on redistricting court challenges. Summary of Legislative Analyst's estimate of net state and local government fiscal impact: Approval would not affect state or local costs. Rejection, which would require establishment of new Senate districts in 1983, would result in state costs of $370,000 and county costs of $500,000.

Fiscal impact

The fiscal estimate provided by the California Legislative Analyst's Office said:

"Approval of this statute would not affect state or local costs. Rejection of this statute would require the Legislature to establish new Senate districts in 1983 and would make ineffective the other provisions of the statute. The State General Fund costs associated with establishing new Senate districts would be approximately $370,000. Counties would incur one-time costs of approximately $500,000 to develop new precinct maps and related election materials for the districts."
