When California voters take their first look at their sample ballots over the next few days, they're likely to see those 12 ballot propositions and cry, "Help!"
There are a number of online resources to research the measures, but one I just checked out today stands out. Produced by Citizen Voice, a nonpartisan voter empowerment group, the Web site features 10-to-12 minute video debates on each of the propositions.
The videos feature knowledgeable advocates and opponents on each of the measures. I just finished watching a couple, and found them to be even-handed and informative.
If you're among those screaming for help when confronted with those multibillion-dollar ballot questions, this is a worthwhile place to find it.
