Voter Information: Making Your Decisions


 

Election 2012There are 11 (count them, 11) propositions to vote on in California, not to mention the presidential election and countless local seats and measures.

Overwhelmed?

There is a great deal of information out there, but some of it can be rather agenda driven. Information to evaluate includes the mailers sent to your home, the endorsements by the daily and weekly newspapers, the major party endorsements, and more.

Three Resources to Try
