California’s initiative campaigns are often hotly debated and even polarizing, so much that voters sometimes miss the important facts. The Rose Institute of State and Local Government’s Video Voter Series hopes to reach California voters online to deliver the hard facts about upcoming ballot initiatives. Each video contains analysis of the pro and con arguments, as well as summaries of who is backing what. We take a balanced and objective perspective for the series. Video Voter is the first project at the Rose Institute to combine expert research methods with a more modern approach. We hope that our videos help California residents to make informed voting decisions.
