It’s finally come. Today is the Election Day! Many people are saying it’s the most important election of our lifetimes. At the very least, it’s the most important election since, well, since the last one.

And there’s a lot to consider. We’ve got 11 California propositions and many other ballot measures across the Bay Area. KALW’s election coordinator, Angela Johnston, and our news director, Ben Trefny, talk about those, and some of the other key races.
