Want to see a live debate on the ballot propositions that's not driven by money? Well, we here at Prop Zero will be participating in Ballotpedia.org's Tweet-a-thon, called "Tweet-A-Prop," via Twitter today from 1 to 5 p.m. Pacific time.
Supporters and opponents of the five California statewide ballot propositions -- Prop 13 (seismic safety), Prop 14 (top two primary), Prop 15 (public financing of campaigns), Prop 16 (the two-thirds vote requirement for municipal power agencies), and Prop 17 (the auto insurance measure) -- will be arguing back and forth, in 140 characters or less.
Below are directions to participate. A full description of the event is here.
