The November election is going to be biggie, and not just because of the presidential race.

As a California resident, you’ll be asked to vote on 12 ballot propositions that span issues ranging from whether Uber drivers should be classified as independent contractors to whether money bail should be part of our criminal justice system. We give you the 101 on each measure.

With guest host Libby Denkmann.

Guests:

Katie Orr, government and politics reporter for KQED

Ben Christopher, reporter covering California politics and elections at CalMatters

Fernando Guerra, professor of political science and Chicano/Latino studies and director of the Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University; member of the KPCC Board of Trustees
