The radical plan - which would be the first division of an existing US state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863 - qualified for the November ballot on Tuesday, the Secretary of State's office announced.

Adding the initiative to the ballot would be the first step in a long process that would ultimately require approval from Congress.

If the measure qualifies for the November ballot, and is approved by voters, California will split into three states: Northern California, California, and Southern California.

The proposal hopes to split the state into three separate states of California, Northern California and Southern California.

And Southern California, moving from Mono County along the state's eastern and southern borders to San Diego, and including Fresno and Kern counties. It would consist of Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito counties. The next statewide general election is set to take place on November 6.

Draper has said that partitioning California would allow regional communities to make better and more sensible decisions on pressing issues such as schools, taxes and deteriorating infrastructure.

It would be the first division of an existing USA state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863.

It got more than the required number of signatures in Tuesday's primary. Each state, though different in size, would have roughly the same population, according to the proposal.

Present day California is the world's fifth biggest economy with a GSP (gross state product) of $2.75 trillion, according to data from the U.S. Department of Commerce, making it bigger than the United Kingdom economy.

The proposal would break the nation's largest state into three, KABC reported.

You might have heard the buzz around CalExit - efforts to have California secede from the nation.

Steve Maviglio, a consultant and critic of Draper's efforts, charged that the plan would lead to "political chaos", charging that it would cost each of the new states millions, the Chronicle said.
