California Proposition Guide

I grew up in Pennsylvania, a state without voter propositions.  Upon arriving in California some years ago, I found the "prop" system to be complicated and kind of a big pain.  Over the years I've taken to making myself a chart of what the various useful (to me) sources are saying about the propositions.  This time I am sharing it here as I hope it will be useful to others.  Any mistakes are probably the result of transcription error on my part.  I'll be happy to correct them.  In compiling this, I picked my region's two largest papers, plus the LA Times.  You'll also find the recommendation of the California League of Women Voters and the "party lines" of the two major parties.  Whatever you do: go out and vote!
