The California general election ballot Nov. 8 has 17 propositions touching on everything from legalizing and repealing the death penalty to gun control, condoms in porn, drug prices, and plastic bags.
The Los Angeles Times estimates some $452 million will be spent between now and Election Day by groups in favor or against the measures.
It is against that backdrop the League of Women Voters of San Joaquin County will present pros and cons for the 17 ballot measures during a gathering non Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. It takes place at the Fellowship Hall of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, and 910 Powers Ave.
The League offers factual, nonpartisan information to help voters understand each ballot measure and the consequences for Californians if approved or defeated.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
