Common Cause California and local universities are hosting a series of "Proposition Expositions" and other events with speakers detailing the pros and cons of the very confusing propositions on the ballot for the November special election. Unfortunately, they're all mid-day on weekdays, but if you get a chance to check them out they should be informative. Common Cause is nonpartisan but has, as an organization, endorsed redistricting as described in Prop. 77.
