Libertarian Party of California’s position on upcoming ballot initiatives.

[Note from the LPOC] The LPCA State Executive Committe met recently and took positions on the statewide ballot initiatives that will be in the upcoming November General Election. These positions do not represent the position of the Orange County Chapter. However, later this month when we post our voter guide, there will most likely be little to no deviatation from our friends at the LPCA.

The State Executive Committee met on August 6, and one of the agenda items was to take positions on the November ballot propositions.

Proposition 51 – NO – School bonds
Proposition 52 – NO – State fees on hospitals
Proposition 53 – YES – Voting on revenue bonds
Proposition 54 – YES – Legislative transparency
Proposition 55 – NO – Income tax hike extension
Proposition 56 – NO – Cigarette tax increase
Proposition 57 – YES – Parole for non-violent felons
Proposition 58 – NO – Changes in bilingual education methods
Proposition 59 – No Position – Advisory vote on Citizens United repeal
Proposition 60 – NO – Condoms required for adult film actors
Proposition 61 – NO – State prescription drug purchases
Proposition 62 – YES – End the Death Penalty in California
Proposition 63 – NO – Extensive new gun control measures
Proposition 64 – NO – Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA)
(While the Libertarian Party has been a strong supporter of ending marijuana prohibition for over 40 years, this proposition does more harm than good, damaging medical availability, and creating additional criminal offenses and regulations.)
Proposition 65 – NO – Directs grocery bag money to wildlife fund
Proposition 66 – NO – Makes death penalty easier
Proposition 67 – NO – Grocery stores can’t provide plastic bags (referendum)


  1. I cannot support the LPCA position to end the death penalty. Only the most heinous of violent criminals are sentenced to death. The families of the victims deserve this just penalty. I suspect that most Libertarians support small-to-no penalty for victimless crimes, but serious penalties for crimes such as rape and murder.

    1. Thank you for posting. This is the one I suspect we might be back and forthing on when the LPOC votes it recommendations. I support the death penalty philosophically, but have issues with how some DA’s and Law Enforcement agencies have handled cases. So I don’t know how I feel about that proposition yet.

  2. Can you please be specific on prop 64? You make claims about more rules and regulations and hurting the medical marijuana process, but I can’t find that anywhere in the prop. Please point out the specific wording and why it’s bad.
