Please check back soon for the recorded video of the conversation! 

Voters have fewer propositions to sift through than two years ago, but will be asked to vote on 11 statewide ballot measures this fall. Among them, Californians will decide whether local governments should be able to expand rent control, whether to retain the gas tax, and if the state should only sell cage-free eggs.

Haven’t studied up yet? No problem. On Wednesday, October 17, AirTalk host Larry Mantle will be joined by a panel of experts to break down the props. Join us for the 2018 midterm edition of this fast-paced voter cram session, broadcast live on KPCC as part of the California Dream project.
