Your Call Election Special: California death penalty propositions; money in politics

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 Thursday, we’ll have a conversation about California's two competing death penalty propositions. Proposition 62 would eliminate the death penalty, and proposition 66 would speed up the death penalty process. If both pass, the measure with the most votes will supersede the other. We'll also talk about the record-setting, multimillion-dollar TV and print advertising aimed at influencing voting decisions.
