Through the ballot thicket...

If you are a Californian you might want to take a look at this post by Dale Franks, who has good advice on this year's California elections:

One of the interesting things about elections in California is the Ballot Initiative, a remnant of progressive Governor Hiram Johnson who implemented the initiative process at the beginning of the 20th century. This means that every election, all manner of wise and unwise things are floated about for presentation to the voters on the ballot.

For some reason, this year’s election is more full of such measures than most, and with the election less than two weeks away, I guess it’s time to actually look at them, and see what this year’s collection of political hacks and special interests are trying to shove down our throats...

We liked what one commenter said:
Thanks for the review!
As a Bay Area resident, I've often relied upon the San Francisco Chronicle for assessing ballot propositions; if they endorsed, I would likely vote against.
