We strongly opposed Proposition 27: For more information about Proposition 27, read more about our work in redistricting.

We only take stands on measures when we have studied the issue and our membership has reached agreement on the policies and positions to support. Because League positions do not cover the issues in Proposition 19, the LWVC took no stand on this measure.

The League occasionally takes a neutral position on ballot measures that deal with issues we have studied, either because there are conflicting League positions or because there are aspects to a measure which in our judgment make our support or opposition inappropriate. The League remained neutral on Propositions 21 and 22.

On August 10, the Legislature and Governor moved Proposition 18 from the November 2010 ballot to the November 2012 ballot.

Why Did We Make These Recommendations?

We use our positions to take stands on measures when we have studied the issue and our membership has reached agreement on the policies and positions to support. We never take positions on candidates or political parties.
