California Ballot Propositions, Feb. 2008

If you live in California, there's a number of statewide ballot propositions (and some areas such as Los Angeles have additional local propositions). If you're like me, you've been deluged by ads and mailers, some of them claiming X is lying while others claim Y is lying. If you're like me, you're also down to the wire for reading up on all of these. You may feel comfortable going to your polling place with one of those "here's how to vote" mailers from a group you trust. Otherwise, here's a few sites that might help.

The California Secretary of State website provides information on the propositions and voter guides for download, if you didn't get one in the mail or can't find yours.

The Los Angeles Times breaks down who's backing and who's opposing each ballot measure.

L.A.-based NPR show Which Way, L.A.? features discussions for and against various propositions over the past few weeks, if you scroll through the shows.

Progressive site Calitics features some posts on various propositions.

I hope that's of some help! Now I'm off to read...

We only had one on our ballot and that one was a no brainer for a vote. We got lucky this time here in Fla.

Oh how I miss the multitudes of CA state propositions. My family and friends from back home (SoCal) have been inundating me with their opinions on all the prop nastiness going on. Good luck sorting through the BS and happy voting!

I just wanted to say hi, I followed your comment from Yikes.

I wish proposals in Missouri were as easy to get info on as these seem to have been, but I guess thats what we get for not having Silicon Valley in our back yard ;)
