Recommended Positions on the Ballot Propositions


Proposition 14: Yes, support stem cell research and treatments for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other nervous system diseases with a $5.5 billion bond issue.

Proposition 15: Yes, expand funding for schools and local governments by closing a property tax loophole that allows large commercial property owners to pay unfairly low property taxes, without raising taxes on residential property.

Proposition 16: Yes, end the ban on equal opportunity policies such as affirmative action so that elected leaders can ensure access to good jobs and schools for all Californians.

Proposition 17: Yes, ensure that Californians who have completed their prison terms can fully participate in our democracy by voting.

Proposition 18: Yes, promote civic engagement by allowing 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections if they will turn 18 before the general election.

Proposition 19: Yes, fund firefighting services by closing a property tax loophole that allows children who inherit homes from their parents to pay low property taxes even when they don't live in the home.

Proposition 20: No, reject this effort to mandate longer prison sentences for low-level offenses when California is experiencing record-low crime rates.

Proposition 21: Yes, allow local governments to enact limited rent control laws to protect seniors and families from out of control housing costs while ensuring landlords can reasonably raise rents after a vacancy.

Proposition 22: No, reject this effort by Uber, Lyft and other app-based services to create a special rule allowing them to avoid paying their drivers a minimum wage and to deny their drivers basic protections of labor law.

Proposition 23: Yes, help control the rapidly increasing cost of dialysis while protecting the health and safety of dialysis patients.

Proposition 24: Neutral. This 52-page ballot proposition strengthens some provisions of California's consumer privacy laws while creating loopholes and exemptions for big technology companies like Facebook and Google.

Proposition 25: Yes, end California's unfair money bail system that imprisons people who cannot afford to pay bail and replace it with a risk-assessment system focused on public safety rather than ability to pay.
