California Voting Guide

Carl DeMaio and Reform California have released their “Plain English” voter guide to give you an easy-to-understand explanation of the ballot measures and grade candidates.  

California’s General Election is underway and ballots must be returned by November 8, 2022. With a bunch of confusing ballot measures and hundreds of candidates running for office, voters can feel overwhelmed and lost.  

This “Plain English” voter guide makes voting simple – especially when it comes to the ballot measures and local offices that do not allow candidates to disclose their party affiliation. Endorsements below are given only to candidates who “passed the test” on these crucial criteria: opposing taxes, fighting crime, improving schools, creating jobs, and defending personal freedoms. 

2022 offers a real chance for a wave election to block costly tax hikes and elect common-sense leaders - but to do that we need your help in turning out your friends, family and neighbors to vote and share this easy-to-understand voter guide with them! 

How to Use the Guide – 4 Sections: 

  • Review Statewide Ballot Measures 
  • Review Statewide Candidate Races 
  • Review Legislative Candidate Races (Congress/State Legislature) 
  • Review all Tax Increase Ballot Measures in California

Statewide Ballot Measures 

Prop 1 — NO 

Official Title: Constitutional Right to Reproductive Freedom. Legislative Constitutional Amendment. 

Plain English Translation: Eliminates Any Restrictions on When Abortions Can Be Performed 

Prop 1 is being sold publicly as merely a codification of a pro-choice position in the California state constitution but it actually goes far further than that. The actual text of this ballot measure would repeal the current ban on abortions after 23 weeks of a pregnancy and allow the right to a late-term abortion up to the moment of birth. Prop 1 would give California one of the most extreme abortion laws in the country. This measure may also interfere with existing state laws that allow for Sexually Violent Predators to be placed under mandatory chemical treatment to limit their sex drive and desires. Reform California recommends a NO vote. 

Prop 26 — NO 

Official Title: Allows In-Person Roulette, Dice Games, Sports Wagering on Tribal Lands. Initiative Constitutional Amendment and Statute.  

Plain English Translation: Protects Tribal Gaming Rights, But Enriches Trial Lawyers Through More Frivolous Lawsuits  

Prop 26 affirms the current practice of allowing only federally-recognized Native American tribes to operate roulette, dice games, and sports wagering on tribal lands, subject to compacts negotiated by the Governor and ratified by the Legislature. It would also allow on-site sports wagering at privately operated horse-racing tracks in specified counties for ages 21 and up. Unfortunately, the measure contains a “poison pill” to expand the use of the Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) to allow unscrupulous trial attorneys to file frivolous lawsuits to shakedown small businesses. Reform California recommends a “NO” vote on Prop 26. 

Prop 27 — NO 

Official Title: Allows Online and Mobile Sports Wagering Outside Tribal Lands. Initiative Constitutional Amendment and Statute. 

Plain English Translation: Allows Private Businesses to Engage in Online Gambling to Compete with Native American Tribes 

Prop 27 would expand gambling in California beyond casinos currently operated by Native American tribes by allowing private businesses to operate online and mobile sports wagering for persons 21 and up. Native American tribes say this competition from private businesses will undermine their ability to fund programs for their tribes. Reform California recommends a NO vote. 

Prop 28 — NO 

Official Title: Provides Additional Funding For Arts And Music Education In Public Schools. Initiative Statute. 

Plain English Translation: Earmarks Mandatory Funding from the Existing State Education Budget for Arts and Music Programs 

Prop 28 is an earmark - or a requirement that the state spend at least a certain amount of funds from the state budget for the exclusive benefit of art and music programs. The earmark mandates that 1% of required state funding be set aside for arts and music programs and then allocates a greater proportion of the funds to schools serving more economically disadvantaged students. Earmarks are not free money - so any earmark will have to come at the expense of other important programs — including programs for fundamental academic areas like reading, writing, arithmetic, etc. Reform California recommends a NO vote. 

Prop 29 — NO 

Official Title: Requires On-Site Licensed Medical Professional At Kidney Dialysis Clinics And Establishes Other State Requirements. Initiative Statute 

Plain English Translation: Imposes Costly Regulations on Kidney Dialysis Clinics to Benefit Organized Labor Unions 

Prop 29 may be familiar to voters since it has been rejected TWICE before in 2018 and 2020. Why does it keep appearing on the ballot? Wealthy labor unions force the measure on the ballot in an attempt to impose new costly regulations on kidney dialysis clinics that would benefit the interests of the unions. Prop 29 requires specific medical personnel on site during treatment at outpatient kidney dialysis clinics - whether or not the personnel are even needed. The measure also increases mandatory state reporting and prohibits clinics from closing or substantially reducing services without state approval. A "no” vote keeps your doctors and clinics more independent from state control. Reform California recommends a NO vote. 

Prop 30 — NO 

Official Title: Provides Funding for Programs to Reduce Air Pollution And Prevent Wildfires by Increasing Tax on Personal Income Over $2 Million. 

Plain English Translation: TAX INCREASE - Increases Income Taxes to Fund a Variety of New Government Programs 

Prop 30 is a massive income tax increase - even though California already has the highest income taxes in the country of any state. Prop 39 imposes a 1.75% tax increase for personal incomes over $2 million. Revenue for the proposition aims to go toward climate change measures, but the definition of programs eligible for these new funds is quite broad as to allow the funds to be used in a wide-range of ways. Reform California recommends a NO vote. 

Prop 31 — NO 

Official Title: Referendum on 2020 Law that Would Prohibit the Retail Sale of Certain Flavored Tobacco Products. 

Plain English Translation: Should California Ban the Sale of Flavored Tobacco? 

Prop 31 is a “referendum” or question on whether a proposed state law should be implemented or rejected. State Senate Bill, SB 793, which prohibits the retail sale of certain flavored tobacco products and tobacco flavor enhancers. A “yes” vote would uphold and pass the law into effect, banning the retail sale of these flavored tobacco products. A “no” vote would overturn the law and tobacco companies would be allowed to sell flavored tobacco products in the state.

Measure E — NO  

Sales Tax 

Measure E is a massive tax increase that will cost you an extra $200 or more per year.

City of Lemon Grove  

Measure Q — NO  

Parcel Tax 

Measure Q is effectively a massive tax increase on Lemon Grove city residents through a bond. Bonds are government loans that must be paid back by taxpayers. What’s worse, bond funds won’t just go toward “improving schools” — they will be given out to special interests who contribute to school board members. The school construction contracts are awarded through project labor agreements (PLAs), a type of agreement that benefits unions who support school board members and discriminates against small and minority-owned non-union companies. Moreover, this bond is being used as a replacement for improving efficiency with current resources. A NO vote blocks these backroom deals and saves taxpayers millions.
