Election Day Propositions, Candidates, Judges and More

Election Day.jpg Election Day is less than a month away. We’ve all heard more than enough about Sarah “Pitbull” Palin but most of us still aren’t sure how to vote on many of the propositions, judicial candidates, assembly seats, and other races right here in California.

November 2, 2010 UPDATE HERE

The LA Progressive has pulled together a list of endorsements and resources from a couple of sources to help you make an informed decision when you vote in the coming weeks. Like you, we can hardly wait to vote for Barack Obama and to see the Bushes leave 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but let’s not forget that we’ve got a whole slew of decisions to make locally as well.

The following endorsements were made by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. The links are sourced at the end of this article.
