"In California, voters considered dueling death penalty propositions. Proposition 62 would have ended the death penalty, making life in prison without parole the toughest sentence in the state. Instead, voters approved Proposition 66, which keeps the death penalty and tries to shorten the time between conviction and execution by putting a time limit on the appeals process. ... Oklahoma voters decided to add the death penalty to the state's constitution and declare it's not cruel and unusual punishment. This allows the state to use any method of execution that's not prohibited by the U.S. Constitution. ... Nebraska lawmakers banned the death penalty in 2015. Voters disagreed and repealed that law, so the death penalty will be back." (11/09/16)
