MapLight

Looking for information on California propositions and state candidates on the fall ballot? The folks at KQED News and The California Report have put together a handy (and embeddable) guide explaining the half-dozen state propositions on the ballot and offering the quick and dirty on candidates for eight statewide races, reproduced here with their permission. You can get more information on off-Island races on KQED News's California Election Watch 2014 web page.

Rob Bonta and David Erlich are running for the 18th District California Assembly seat representing Alameda, San Leandro and much of Oakland. Berkeley-based nonprofit MapLight has compiled details on the candidates' background and fundraising, which we've embedded below (click on the candidate picture to get their details).

We're hoping to partner with MapLight further on our 2014 election coverage; in the meantime, you can find out more about the statewide candidates and ballot measures on your June 3 ballot by clicking here and entering your zip code.
