This is not a test.
Before joining Common Knowledge, I served as a high school special education teacher. My students were caring, intelligent and incredibly hard working, but nearly all felt anxious when it came time to take tests. At Common Knowledge, we believe that voting shouldn’t feel like a test.
Even so, I know that many voters feel overwhelmed when they go to the polls. Between voting for president, Senate, House of Representatives, statewide offices, city councils and local ballot measures, voters have a lot on their plates. This year in particular, the ballot is especially jam-packed with statewide measures.
From school funding to plastic bags, this November’s ballot propositions cover a wide range of topics and issues. This year — with 17 statewide propositions included on the ballot — voters need all the help they can get. Enter the Easy Voter Guide.
