Get ready to vote!

There is a lot on the November 8 ballot! Be prepared and do your homework.

Here are some helpful nonpartisan voting guides to help you to prepare for voting day.

Remember, you don't have to vote on every proposition or every ballot item if you don't want to. The items you choose to vote on will still count.

You will also find "further reading" links to newspaper editorials and opinions about the propositions.
