California: Government and Politics


     California Ballot Propositions Database  in Hastings College of the Law
library is a comprehensive, searchable source of information on California ballot
propositions from 1911 to the present.  California Ballot Initiatives Database
(currently in Beta testing) contains California ballot initiatives from 1912 to
the present. 

The CSUS library has a collection of ballot measures and propositions under
"Pamphlet files--California Elections", located on the second floor in the
reference area. They are housed chronologically in the file cabinets against
the wall by the first row of reference shelves. 
      To find information, comments or opinions about the propositions of your
interest,  you can search California newspapers and some databases that may
contain the resources. For newspapers, click here for California Newspapers.
