Voters will have a lot of decisions to make come November.
In addition to the initiative that would dump the citizen's redistricting commission and go back to allowing legislators to draw their own districts, there is also an opposing measure that would expand the commission's authority to include drawing Congressional districts.
Also on the ballot are initiatives that would legalize and tax marijuana for recreational use, prohibit the state from taking funds from local governments and transportation agencies, roll back California's landmark climate change legislation until unemployment hits five percent for a full year, and eliminate the two-thirds vote needed to pass a state budget, among others.
And, it's still early. Fifty four measures remain in circulation, vying for the signatures needed to qualify for an up or down vote in the general election.
