CURBED S.F.'s Adam Brinklow reports that in the November election, Californians will vote on Cal 3 ballot measure— which will determine whether or not to split the Golden State into three separate states.

Yes, really.

According to Brinklow, venture capitalist Tim Draper is behind the so-called “Three Californias” initiative, which Curbed LA, LA Times, and other outlets report has exceeded the 365,000 voter signature threshold to qualify for the ballot.

For the record, over 10,000 of those signatures came from San Francisco; zero came from Alameda County.

Under the measure, San Francisco would become part of “Northern California,” a new state stretching from the present Oregon border to Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Merced, and Mariposa Counties in the south.

“Southern California“ would stretch from the Mexico border up to Mono, Madera, and Fresno counties at its northern tip.

And a third state, earning the original “California” moniker, would be composed of Monterey, San Benito, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Venture, and San Luis Obispo counties.
