Every election year, that thick gray booklet concerning the State ballot propositions arrives in the mail. You read it with the best of intentions only to lose your way while wading through the swamp of legal jargon. Is Proposition X confusing because it’s poorly written, or are you being deliberately mislead? Radio and television spots muddy the issues even more. You have a life, a spouse and children, a job! Maybe you should figure out how you'll vote by tacking that booklet to a wall and throwing darts at it, instead.
On Monday October 8th Cupertino Library offers conscientious but time-crunched voters a better option. Representatives from the Cupertino/Sunnyvale chapter of the League of Women Voters will walk you through the 11 state propositions on this year’s ballot. They will offer a description, non-partisan analysis, and detail the supporters and opponents of these measures. Listen and learn, and avoid feeling ambushed at the ballot box this year.
