You can throw your own proposition party with friends, or join one that somebody else is hosting.
Divide up the propositions so that they're all covered, and research one. What's it about? Who supports it? Follow the money.
Bring your findings to the Proposition Party, and discuss. It's a civil, convivial environment that will help inform your vote.
It's a party with a purpose, and you should totally do it!
Proposition A, F and Z? Measure 92 and Initiative 9? Do I vote Yes or No? Which one was the marijuana one again? Who can keep track of all this?
California ballot propositions are direct democracy in action. Direct democracy is great, but only if your vote is informed. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of special interest propaganda machines. But who has time to research all these Propositions? Enter The Proposition Party.
The Proposition Party is a great way to educate your vote on complicated ballot initiatives while having fun and building community.
Each party guest comes prepared to summarize the pros and cons of one Proposition for the rest of the group.
Notes are noted, discussion is discussed, drinks are drunk and good vibes are promoted. Best of all, votes are educated!
