Voting on initiatives is one California voters' most powerful tools. CVF has long been committed to helping voters make informed choices on ballot measures, by ensuring voters have access to reliable, nonpartisan voting information such as knowing who are the top donors for and against each proposition. CVF helped shape successful legislation that directs the state's Fair Political Practices Commission to publish and update lists of the top ten donors supporting and opposing each proposition. CVF also helps voters learn about ballot measures through its Proposition Song music videos.
In 2011, CVF was asked by the Greenlining Institute to examine potential disclosure reforms that could improve voters' ability to follow the money behind inititiave campaigns, resulting in the report, Initiative Disclosure Reform: Overview and Recommendations.
