CALEXIT: And So It Begins … Collecting Signatures to Qualify California Secession From the U.S. for 2018 Ballot

Californian’s Are Pushing For Calexit


Proponents of a constitutional amendment looking for California’s secession from the United States have begun collecting voter signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot. The folks who just cannot accept Donald J. Trump as president have until July 25 to collect 585,407 valid voter signatures to qualify for the November 2018 ballot. One can dare to dream! Also, define “valid voter” signature. Are they accepting signatures of people who don’t live in California? Heck, its not as though they are probably verifying whether individuals that provide their signatures are legal residents. Hey California, don’t ask for things, they might just come true. Although, this is highly doubtful.

Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment seeking California’s secession from the U.S. can begin collecting voter signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot, the secretary of state’s office said Thursday.

The so-called Calexit movement emerged within days of the upset presidential victory of Republican Donald Trump, who lost California by nearly 4.3 million votes. A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that nearly one in three Californians support the state leaving the U.S.

Proponents have until July 25 to collect 585,407 valid voter signatures to qualify for the November 2018 ballot.

The proposed measure would strike language from the California Constitution defining the state as “an inseparable part of the United States of America, and the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.” If it passed, there would be a statewide special election in March 2019 to ask voters if they want California to become an independent country.
