Voter Guide (Los Angeles County)
October 27, 2014 Leave a comment
If I find a reason to not vote straight (R) ticket on partisan races, and straight “No” on the ballot propositions, I’ll update this post.
VOTING NO ON ALL JUDICIAL NOMINEES IS COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE! Take the time to do it right, rather than voting on the basis of emotional self-satisfaction.

“Why the unusual proposition numbering on this ballot?”
“Originally, the propositions were to be numbered consecutively, beginning with Prop. 43. However, the state Legislature renumbered the two propositions that it put on the ballot, Prop. 43 and Prop. 44, as Prop. 1 and Prop. 2, while leaving the rest of the numbers unchanged.”
Proposition 1 (was 43), Water Bond No.
Proposition 2 (was 44), Rainy Day Budget Stabilization Fund Act No.
Proposition 45, Insurance Companies Required to Justify Their Rates to the Public Initiative No.
Proposition 46, Increase in Cap on Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Initiative No.
Proposition 47, Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative No.
Proposition 48, Referendum on Indian Gaming Compacts No.
