Be sure to vote on the many critical propositions on the ballot:

YES on Proposition 15

A yes vote would reclaim $12 billion to invest in schools and vital services for our local communities.

YES on Proposition 16

A yes vote would reverse the ban on affirmative action so California can design programs that provide good jobs, better wages, and access to great schools for all.

YES on Proposition 17

A yes vote would restore voting rights to tens of thousands of people currently on parole who have returned home from incarceration yet are unable to participate in elections.

YES on Proposition 18

A yes vote would expand the right to vote to 17-year-olds who will be 18 at the time of the next general election. The expansion applies to primary elections and special elections.

NO on Proposition 20

A no vote would prevent California from enacting certain “tough on crime” policies that contribute to mass incarceration.

YES on Proposition 21

Proposition 21 would allow communities to limit rent increases and preserve affordable housing. It brings stability to seniors, families and working Californians.

NO on Proposition 22!

A no vote would require app-based companies to provide basic protections to their workers such as paid sick leave, workers’ compensation, and unemployment benefits.

YES on Proposition 25

A yes vote would end cash bail in California and replace it with the risk assessment process. While legitimate critiques of risk assessment exist, cash bail is a hideously unfair system.
