But after his 2014 "Six Californias" plan failed to make it onto the ballot for the second time, Draper redrew the state lines.

The plan calls for three new entities: Northern California, California and Southern California.

- "Northern California" would include 40 counties from Santa Cruz to the OR border, including San Francisco and Sacramento, the current state capital.

The Bay Area would be part of a new Northern California state with a border that starts north of Monterey, runs east and north to the Nevada state line, and includes everything north to the OR border.

Southern California: San Diego, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, Mono, Madera, Inyo, Tulare, Fresno, Kings, Kern and Imperial counties.

A Silicon Valley billionaire has amassed enough signatures to have his proposal splitting California into three parts on the state's ballot in November.

Draper argues that the three diverse regions would be better served by their own, smaller governments.

De Gea wants Spain's PM to offer public apology
In the end, things are shown, it turned out that everything was a lie. "But it's water under the bridge". While appreciative of the personal apology, De Gea believes he should be given a public one.

Certification that the initiative has qualified for the ballot will come on June 28. It ultimately did not receive enough valid petition signatures, according to the L.A. Times.

Once approved, the measure would require the governor to notify Congress on January 1, 2019, and request a vote on the proposed California split within 12 months of that date. This isn't that. Instead, this initiative would ask Congress to allow the state to divide itself into thirds.

Cal3 mapIn November, California voters will decide whether they still want to be California voters.

This isn't the first time that Draper has put forward a ballot initiative in favor of breaking up California. If the state's residents vote for the proposal, California's legislature would have a year, beginning in January of 2019, to implement it.

Not many Californians are on board thus far, however.

According to a letter from the state's Legislative Analyst's Office, the new states will face income disparities, in addition to "virtually certain" court challenges that could take years to resolve.
