We put together a list of guides to election information. Some are non-partisan, and some are WILPF recommendations.
First there is a great summary brochure with WILPF recommendations on one side and a non-partisan (actually, multi-partisan) list on the other, made by Nancy ABBEY. They were made to be printed back to back on legal sized (8.5 X 14) paper. But we printed some on 8 X 11, scaled down and rotated of course, and they were still fine, with glasses. 🙂 Feel free to print them and hand them out!
- The WILPF recommendations, as side one. This can be printed as 8×11 or 8×14 to match your second side choice. Or just as a handout alone.
- The multi-partisan recommendations on 8×14.
- The multi-partisan recommendations on 8×11.
Here’s a guide from the Campus Election Engagement Project that shows the 2 main-stream party candidates’ positions on issues. It has a link to their website where they list the issues and have the 4 main party candidates’ stances.
And here is a list of recommendations about State Ballot Initiatives, from the perspective of some Berkeley folks.
And there’s a lot of good information at https://votesmart.org/ but you have to put up with music when it first comes on, and you have to dig for the information.
Good luck to us all!
What: Don’t Frack California March 15th
Where: The Capitol Lawn, Sacramento, CA
When: Saturday, March 15th, 2014, 1pm
Our plan so far is to get as many voices as we can to Sacramento to make it loud and clear to Governor Brown and his administration that Californians want an end to fracking in our state. We’ll be hearing from voices from all over the state who are witnessing fracking in their own communities and organizing against it. Our goal, is to show the overwhelming number of Californians who will take the long trek to Sacramento to make it clear that climate leader’s don’t frack.We’ll have some more information on our program as we get closer to the event.
If you need a ride or a place to stay in Sacramento, check out our ride board.
How you can help:
We need folks to help organize and coordinate buses from all over the state. If you’re interested in becoming a bus captain email our organizing team,firstname.lastname@example.org.

Letter to Governor Brown to call for a Moratorium on Fracking in California
WILPF-California Action, has signed on to a letter to Governor Brown urging him to use his executive authority to call a time-out on fracking until the impacts can be thoroughly studied and until safeguards are put in place to protect against the risks.
