What To Vote For And Against In California
The Courage Campaign, a progressive organization in California has released a “Last Minute” voters’ guide for Californians. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom sent an email to organization members this morning with suggestions on what to vote for and against in the state.
California’s future may be decided on Tuesday as voters are pinned to elect a new governor, plus decide the future of a key U.S. Senate seat. There are also a few controversial ballot measures, including Proposition 19, which would legalize cannabis and tax it.
Here is a quick summary from the Courage Campaign on how to vote on those California ballots:
YES on Proposition 19
NO on Proposition 20
YES on Proposition 21
NO on Proposition 22
HELL NO! on Proposition 23
YES on Proposition 24
YES on Proposition 25
NO on Proposition 26
No recommendation on Proposition 27

Voters will also have to pick between the Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman for the governorship, plus decide if US Senator Barbara Boxer will continue to hold her post. The Republicans are cheering for Whitman and Carly Fiorina to win the governorship and senate seat respectably, but Democrats are hopeful that Brown and Boxer will prevail in one of the most heated races in California history.
