League Election Materials on Smart
(SACRAMENTO, CALIF.) California voters are wading
through lists of candidates and ballot issues to prepare
for the November 5 elections. The League of Women Voters
of California/Smart Voter has readied smartvoter.org to
offer voters objective background on the complex issues
and array of candidates that appear on this election's ballots.
The League of Women Voters of California's award-winning
Smart Voter election web site includes a brief biography
of each candidate along with their three top priorities,
position papers, endorsements and their photos.
Smart Voter lends easy access to the League's widely-acclaimed
nonpartisan "Pros & Cons on the State Ballot Measures,"
the League's comprehensive guide to the ballot measures.
"Pros & Cons" is available in English and
New voters love the simplicity of "Easy Reading Voter
Guide," an abbreviated version of "Pros &
Cons," written at the 6th grade reading level. The
"Easy Reading Voter Guide" offers versions in
English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean.
"It's important to make an informed decision in the
voting booth," said Trudell Een, Smart Voter Project
Director. "Smart Voter provides Californians with both
sides of an issue before they cast their vote."
