We're less than 50 days away from the election, and it's not just the next president that will be decided on November 6. There are eleven propositions on the California ballot this year.

And while we're sure you've all been studying your ballot guides studiously, we've decided to give you a little help with a new series we're calling "Props To You"

The first in our series is Proposition 37, known as the "California right to know genetically engineered food act." As you might have guessed, it has to do with genetically engineered foods.
