on november 8th we are voting on 8 important initiatives, from proposition 73 which requires, with certain exceptions, a doctor to notify the parent or legal guardian of a pregnant minor at least 48 hours before performing the abortion, to proposition 80 which deals with a number of aspects of the state’s electricity market. of course the airwaves have been focusing on props 74 – 77. if you want to take a look at a quick summary or look at the issues more in-depth, vote circle seems to do an straight forward assessment by giving us the exact text of the propositions.

one of the easiest ways to vote in la is the early voting option where you can vote touch screen. some of the places you can do this are: beverly hills city hall – room G30C, culver city - city hall – 1st floor overflow room, and pasadena jackie robinson center daily 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. early voting takes place between october 26th to november 4th, 2005.

Personally I am glad I don't live in CA. I enjoy our republic and wouldn't want to move to a true democracy. But the great thing about the USA (for the time being) is our history of Federalism! w00t!

Anyway, as a Californian, how do you like the California referendum style way of doing things?

ross,

i too am glad that we live in a republic for a variety of reasons. now i do like having a variety of ways of balancing power in our democratic republic, or providing checks and balances. as far as referendums in california, some would say they are a "fourth branch" of government. i personally haven't yet had the chance to take much time to read and think about referendums so I don't have any comments at this time. i do find it interesting that 27 other states have joined california in this.
