Get your creative juices and rhyming schemes together. Secretary of State Debra Bowen announced the proposition numbers assigned to the 10 measures that will appear on the November 2nd ballot. Of note is Prop 19, which will be followed closely across the country. We're curious what rhyming and/or creative slogans will come out with that one (bad example: "get green with nineteen"). Here's the full list of measures and brief descriptions, compliments of the Center for Governmental Studies here in Los Angeles:

  • Prop 18: Legislative Bond Measure: Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2010.
  • Prop 19: Allows People 21 years old or older to Possess, Cultivate, or Transport Marijuana for Personal Use.
  • Prop 20: Removes Elected Representatives from the Process of Establishing Congressional Districts and Transfers that Authority to the Recently Authorized 14-member Redistricting Commission.
  • Prop 21: Establishes $18 Annual Vehicle License Surcharge to Help Fund State Parks and Wildlife Programs and Grants Free Admission to All State Parks to Surcharged Vehicles.
