Well, election day is tomorrow and if you haven't already voted by mail and are otherwise understudied for tomorrow, there are plenty places to help catch you up on tomorrow's election. Here are some of our recommendations:

Democratic & Republican Parties: If you stick to party lines, the California Republican Party opposes all six and the California Democratic Party supports 1B, 1C and 1F.

Young Progressive Majority: Just like the last election, this group proves their worth with an extensive easy-to-read guide to the six propositions, City Attorney, Council District 5, State Senate 26 and Community College District seats 2 and 6.

Smart Voter: Another dependable source is Smart Voter from the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund. They include info on all the aforementioned races including the 32nd Seat in the U.S. House.

Bicycle Advocacy: Every election, blogger Ted Rogers asks candidates about their positions on bicycling in Los Angeles. He collects statements from the candidates for Council District 5 and State Senate Seat 26.

Center for Governmental Studies: The local think tank produces short YouTube videos on each of the props.

The Policy Report: Republican blogger Adam Haverstock always does his own thorough analysis of state ballot issues.

Media: The LA Times has two sections, one for their opinion and endorsements and another for talking up the issues straight forwardly. The Daily News also took sides on where they stand with the candidates and props.
