Here’s Everything You Should Expect To See On The 2020 California Ballot

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCLA chapter.

It’s election season! The 2020 presidential election may be the most important cycle in our lifetimes, but as important as it is, state elections are equally critical. State elections affect our day to day lives more directly. While you take the time to think about which candidates can help usher in a new American era, here is a complete guide of all of the different measures that will be listed on the Californian ballot. Each proposition will have objective facts about the measure and opposing sides of each issue.

Gen Z has been an extremely vocal generation on human rights issues, tax/wealth distrbution, healthcare and so much more. We are not afraid of how our personal experiences have contributed to our political beliefs and our desire for change. Voting yes or no on these propositions is the first step in implementing change within our state and making California a better place to live.
