November 2020 Ballot Measures Explained

UC Hastings Law faculty members have prepared these short (3-10 minutes) explanations of each of the November statewide ballot measures. We hope these explanations help you understand the current law and the proposed changes as you prepare to mark your ballot.

If you aren’t sure whether you’re registered to vote, please type “check my voter registration” into your search engine to confirm registration and/or get instructions on how to register to vote.

California residents may also use this Secretary of State website to check registration status and/or register to vote: https://registertovote.ca.gov/.

The UC Hastings California Ballot Initiatives Database is a near-complete record of citizen initiatives and propositions from 1911 to the present.
