SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The California Supreme Court has blocked a measure that would divide the state in three from appearing on November ballot.
The measure proposed to split California into the three following states:

California: This will be considered the new state which includes Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito counties.
Southern California: San Diego, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, Mono, Madera, Inyo, Tulare, Fresno, Kings, Kern and Imperial counties.
