The Tuesday Count: California will remain one state as “Six Californias” fails signature count

Six Californias (News)
Education (Quick hits)
Minimum Wage (Spotlight)

You won’t be able to live in a state named after a mineral used in microchips or one named after our third president. Silicon Valley and Jefferson would have been two of the six states called for by Timothy Draper’s "Six Californias" Initiative. The initiative failed to make the ballot following the California Secretary of State's random signature count, which revealed a low number of valid signatures. As a result, Californians will not be voting on partitioning their state in 2016, unless supporters jumpstart a new initiative.[1] Across the Atlantic Ocean, the United Kingdom is facing an even more radical partition proposal. The Scots, who have been part of the United Kingdom since 1707, will be voting on a Scotland Independence Referendum on September 18, 2014.[2]

Meanwhile, the question of public funding of private education is heating up in Hawaii. A battle line is being drawn, with private preschools pushing for the amendment and the state's largest teacher's union calling for a "no" vote.[3] Two of California's most expensive initiatives are starting to sink in the polls. This could just be a bump in the road, or opposition campaigns could be effectively targeting and convincing voters that the initiatives are flawed.[4]

Following the passage of a $15 per hour minimum wage law in Seattle, 15 Now activists want to take their proposal across Lake Washington to Bellevue. According to The Seattle Times, Bellevue is more "conservative" and "business-friendly" than Seattle. The new geography may come with a tougher fight for 15 Now.[5] Other supporters of a $15 minimum wage have started collecting signatures to place an initiative on the ballot in Los Angeles, as well.[6]
