Voters SAY NO to CA Special Election Propostions

It's official; California voters say no to 5 out of 6 ballot measures in the special election ballot tonight, in one of the most lowest voter turnout elections in a while. 

In terms of schools, this will mean more budget cuts in schools. Ironically, I'm glad people said no to these propositons: CA education is getting worse, and while I acknowledge that California's education DOES need money, having random propositions like these (i.e. Prop 1B - $9 billion to schools starting in 2011-2012; Prop 1C - the state borrows lottery money to pay for school) is are just temporary fixes, not permanent solutions.
