If you opted to vote by mail in the upcoming November 3 election, you've most likely received your vote-by-mail ballot by now. But if you haven't completed and mailed it yet, now's the time to tackle this all-important task!

Prop. 16 - Opportunity for all, regardless of race, sex or ethnicity

Proposition 16 permits government decision-making policies to consider race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in order to address diversity.
