With 99.0% of the ballots counted in California, the “unofficial” results from the California Secretary of State’s Office show:
- Proposition 15 did not pass (51.7% no votes to 48.3% yes votes). Proposition 15 would have assessed most nonresidential property at fair market value;
- Proposition 19 passed (51.5% yes votes to 48.5% no votes). Proposition 19 revises the parent/child property tax base-year transfer and expands the property-tax base transfers for seniors, disabled persons, and disaster victims; and
- Proposition 22 passed (58.4% yes votes to 41.6% no votes). Proposition 22 allows app-based drivers to remain independent contractors and requires the companies that hire them to pay certain benefits (e.g., specified wage guarantees, health care stipends) if certain conditions are met.
