A Bounty of Information Awaits Voters Online

Davis, CA -- Voters seeking reliable information about the eight propositions on Tuesday's ballot will find a bounty of web sites to help them, according to the California Voter Foundation (CVF), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that advances the responsible use of technology in the democratic process. "The Internet is rich in reliable election resources, and available 24 hours a day," said CVF President Kim Alexander.

Many organizations and government agencies provide comprehensive, nonpartisan information about propositions online. Below are sites offering information for the November 8th special election:
The California Voter Foundation publishes the California Online Voter Guide, featuring news articles and top campaign contributors for and against each measure, along with information about the voting process, voting equipment, and how to contact county election offices.
A collaboration of the California State Library, the Secretary of State and the League of Women Voters, this eight-page booklet gives an easy-to-understand overview of each measure and pro/con arguments. The guide is a great online resource, and also available as a handy printout and in multiple languages.
Produced by the League of Women Voters, this site offers information on the numerous local races and measures around the state that will be voted on Nov. 8, as well as in-depth analyses and pros/cons of all eight propositions.
The Secretary of State's web site features polling place lookups, the contents of the state ballot pamphlet, and information on multilingual voter services.
Find out how much money proposition campaigns are raising, and who's giving it, at the Secretary of State's campaign disclosure site.
Edited by an experienced Capitol lobbyist, this site is the best place to look for the most recent contributions to proposition campaigns.
