California Special Election Deals Blow To Schwarzenegger
Special Election
The California special election of 2005 was held on November 8, 2005 after being called by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on June 13, 2005. Californians voted on eight ballot initiatives. Propositions 73, 76, and 77 were initiative constitutional amendments, while the others were initiative statutes. The election was the most expensive in California history.
