Your Call Election Special: California ballot propositions guide

Every Thursday through Election Day, Rose Aguilar will host a special second hour of Your Call at 11 a.m. focused on local and state elections, the voting system, and the democratic process in California.

This week, we’ll discuss California ballot propositions. Seventeen propositions are on the ballot affecting issues ranging from the death penalty and marijuana to drug-pricing and plastic bags. We'll also talk about some of the key bills Governor Brown has signed and vetoed.
