About the Propositions

This ballot includes 17 statewide measures, also called propositions. Propositions are assigned numbers by the Secretary of State, and require a simple majority to pass. Many voters skip some propositions when they are uncertain how to vote. Your ballot will be valid even if you choose to skip some contests.
