what are 1 or 2 extremely significant propositions that will be on your states or cities ballot this election?

in california, 2 very important ones that i can think of are:

prop 1A: high speed rail system that will cost taxpayers $20 billion or more over 30 years

prop 8: nullifying gay marriage out of the traditional definition of marriage

...and for the record, i am still undecided on both issues! i'll probably leave both blank.

SC,
Hi, Im voting No on 1a because while it would be nice to have a Bullet Train, im not so sure we can afford it right now, and I have yet to see a public works project in this state finish on time and within its budget.

As far as 8, Im gay and find myself leaning toward Yes. Long story.

I don't live in California any more, but I would say for me it is a toss up voting for the 1A proposition. I think a high speed train would be great, but it is costly.

As far as proposition 8, I would vote no on it since I believe gays should be allowed to marry

Of course these are my opinions and I don't live there

prop 2 is the cutest one ever.

Yes means that farmers have to provide a place for animals to sit and stretch their legs.
