Michele Ellson

Looking for information on California propositions and state candidates on the fall ballot? The folks at KQED News and The California Report have put together a handy (and embeddable) guide explaining the half-dozen state propositions on the ballot and offering the quick and dirty on candidates for eight statewide races, reproduced here with their permission. You can get more information on off-Island races on KQED News's California Election Watch 2014 web page.

Meanwhile, MapLight has teamed up with the League of Women Voters of California, which produces the Smart Voter website, to create Voter's Edge. Biographies, endorsements and other information about the candidates - including their donors - is available here; type in your address to get your full ballot. And you can get all the 411 about Alameda races - in-depth candidate profiles, completed questionnaires, videos and more - on The Alamedan's Election 2014 page.
