    Amends California Constitution to expressly include an individual's fundamental right to reproductive freedom, which includes the fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and the fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives. This amendment does not narrow or limit the existing rights to privacy and equal protection under the California Constitution.

    Proposition 27 Online Sports Betting
    Fail: 1,906,342 / 17.7% Yes votes ...... 8,849,206 / 82.3% No votes

Directs revenues to regulatory costs, homelessness programs, nonparticipating tribes.

Some revenues would support state regulatory costs, possibly reaching the mid-tens of millions of dollars annually.

    Pass: 6,924,618 / 64.4% Yes votes ...... 3,827,971 / 35.6% No votes
