 Be an Educated Voter

Attend our October 1, 2016 Branch Meeting

 It is that time of year for us to take a tour of the field of State Propositions and Ballot Measures. A ballot measure is a piece of proposed legislation to be approved or rejected by eligible voters. Ballot measures are also known as “propositions” or simply “questions”. Ballot measures differ from most legislation passed by representative democracies; ordinarily, an elected legislature develops and passes laws. Ballot measures, by contrast, are an example of direct democracy. The November 8 election will present us in California with Propositions 51 – 67.  How can we best understand and vote?

Nancy Mahr, a leader in both AAUW and The League of Women Voters, will provide a review of the ballot measures. Nancy is immediate past president of the League of Women Voters LA County, Past President of the Palos Verdes Peninsula League of Women Voters as well as member of the Palos Verdes Peninsula AAUW branch. Nancy is a newly elected director of AAUW CA. She co-chairs AAUW CA’s Public Policy Committee and is Public Policy chair of her PVP Branch.

Join us at the meeting on October 1st at the Los Altos Branch Library – 5614 Britton Drive,  Long Beach 90815 Coffee and Danish will be served starting at 10:15 am with the program starting at 10:30. A brief business meeting follows the program.
