Website Provides Nonpartisan Info on Ballot Measures

The site provides a comprehensive list of endorsers as information about the measures.

Are you struggling with trying to understand any of the 11 propositions on the November 6 ballot?  Does knowing who supports or opposes a ballot measure make a difference in how you vote?  If you answered yes to either of these questions a new website offering ballot measure information may be of interest to you.

El Cerrito Patch reports the nonpartisan website California Choices offers “a one-stop source of information about the state propositions, along with an endorsements table showing where non-profits, newspapers, unions and political parties stand on each one.”

In a recent Caffeine Chronicles post on Benicia Patch columnist Lois Requist mentioned the League of Women Voters of California as a group offering limited information on California ballot measures.

What outside sources help you decide how to vote on ballot propositions?  Do you follow the money to find out where campaign funding comes from for each measure?  Tell us in comments what factors are important to you when deciding how to vote on a ballot measure.
