Song Lays Out Ballot Measures in Verse

This year’s official state voter guide details 13 statewide ballot measures in 191 pages of juicy legalese. Luckily for the confused lay person and the just-too-busy lawyer, there is an alternative to studying all those subsections and wherefores. It’s called “The Proposition Song.”

The ditty takes a banjo and about three minutes to explain in song what the 13 initiatives are all about. The songwriter — and one of five vocalists on the track — is Kim Alexander, founder and president of the nonprofit California Voter Foundation.

“California voters are facing a long and complicated ballot this election,” Alexander says in a press release. “The song introduces voters to the propositions in a fun and interactive way.”

You can sing along to “The Proposition Song” here because, as the chorus says, “the ballot is too darn long.”
