California voters decided on 11 state ballot measures Tuesday night, including rival tax measures that involved education funding and a proposal that would have repealed the death penalty.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, voters said "Yes" to five measures.

Ballot Proposition Results:

Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed $6 billion-per-year tax increase. He said automatic spending cuts would hit public schools if the measure failed.
