California Voters–Including State’s 3.4 million Independents–Are Winners in Friday’s
Decision on Ballot Wording for Proposition 14
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 12, 2010
Statement by Harry Kresky, General Counsel
“The Court's ruling on the ballot summary for Proposition 14 ensures a fair and objective statement of what the initiative, if passed, would do. The Court refused to allow party loyalists to insert language designed to mislead and frighten voters. Proposition 14, if passed, will place power, where it belongs, in the hands of the voters. And that includes California’s 3.4 million independents who presently have no right to participate in primary elections.”
