Your Call

Today on Your Call: What do we need to know about Tuesday’s election in California?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the two statewide ballot measures to increase the taxes on cigarettes and to change term limits for state legislators. Voters will also vote on the 2012 presidential contest, and local and statewide races.  What’s at stake? What questions do you have?  Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.
