A measure that seeks to split California into three states has qualified for the November ballot. The plan is backed by Silicon Valley billionaire Tim Draper, who previously failed in an attempt to pass a measure to divide California into six states. Draper's plan would create Northern California, Southern California and a third state named "California," anchored by Los Angeles.
