If you haven’t voted yet and are trying to get some information on the ballot initiatives and candidates, here are some websites I have found helpful:
- Voter’s Edge California
- CALmatters Election Guide [edit: one of my friends thinks the proposition explainer videos on this site are biased. I watched two and they seemed fairly neutral to me, but I might not have watched the ones he is reacting to. FYI]
These are all nonpartisan websites that focus on explaining what’s going on rather than advocating for one side or another.
And if you haven’t registered to vote in California you can register online now for the next elections at https://registertovote.ca.gov/ or you can still register to vote conditionally in this election at https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voter-registration/conditional-voter-reg/ (that means that you’ll be able to cast a ballot and they’ll count your vote if your registration processes successfully).
