* Online disclosure of late contributions begins TODAY

Beginning today, every contribution of $1,000 made to a California proposition or legislative candidate must be disclosed online within 24 hours. Traditionally, up to 25 percent of all the money raised in a California election comes in the final two weeks of the campaign season. If you want to keep up on the latest numbers, visit the Secretary of State's Cal-Access web site at

The California Voter Foundation's Top Ten Donors lists show the biggest donors for and against every measure through September 30, and will be updated again next week once the latest reports are disclosed. Visit CVF's Top Ten list at:

* Watch Cal Channel for more election news

Speaking of the California Channel....I highly recommend this excellent cable station if you want to see some really substantive coverage of this year's election. Cal Channel carries public affairs programming, such as Bill Rosendahl's show on Adelphia Communications and California Capitol Week from KVIE in Sacramento. Cal Channel has also been repeatedly airing the legislative hearings that took place on each of the ballot initiatives in recent months, and again produced its award-winning "Cable Free Airtime Project" for this election season, providing a brief interview with each of the U.S. Senate candidates.

Check your local listings or visit to find out what's on and where you can tune in locally to watch the California Channel.

That's it for today, folks. Have a great week!
