California voters come Nov. 8 will have to sort through the longest list of statewide propositions imaginable. The confusing array of public policy choices includes, the future of the death penalty, a criminal sentence measure aimed at cutting the state prison population by giving inmates a chance for earlier parole, a collection of new tough gun laws and a slew of other measures on the November Ballot.

On today’s show we provide listeners with a “voter guide” to help with the navigation of propositions/measures and local initiatives, come this 2016 election. Our round-table of experts include individuals committed to informing community and helping us all wade through the maze of policy and legal jargon.
