RPT’s 2020 General Election Voter Guide (Sticky Post)

I may update if I come across new information, but, for the most part everyone is on the same page. I disagreed with John and Ken on prop 18, that was it.

NO

PROPOSITION 17 – Voting Rights Restoration for Persons on Parole Amendment

NO

PROPOSITION 18 – Primary Voting for 17-Year-Olds Amendment

  • JOHN and KEN say YES (here is their reasoning): What’s that line? If an 18 year old is old enough to be drafted , then why can’t he vote ? Or buy liquor? Ah, 17 is close enough . Not all will qualify and most won’t vote anyways.
  • THE HOWARD JARVIS TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION says NO to the measure (here is their reasoning): Proposition 18 would change the voting age in California to allow 17-year-olds to vote in primaries and special elections if they will turn 18 by the date of the next general election. While some states allow this, California is different than other states because under Prop. 13 and Prop. 218, tax increases must go on the ballot for voter approval. These proposed tax increases are frequently on primary and special election ballots. Proposition 18 would allow high school students to vote on tax increases. This is unwise. The voting age in California should not be changed. VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 18.
