I used recommendations from the League of Women Voters and 3rd hand from a Progressive Pundit.
Most of the Ballot Measures are sponsored by special interest groups. Sometimes good and sometimes bad.

|Prop 19: Property Tax Breaks||N||Y||$47M||$45 K||58% 42%||N exacerbates an already inequitable property tax system - offering tax breaks to people who do not need them. Providing tax breaks to homeowners over 55 who purchase a replacement home, and allowing them to "transfer" their current tax assessment to a new home anywhere in the state, does nothing to help low-income seniors or families struggling to find housing. This proposition would allow not just one, but three such transfers. Senior citizens are already allowed to keep their current tax assessment when they purchase a home of equal or lesser value.|
Y Net improves funds for government, and equity for most. let grandparents move to safer ground, while stopping the kushners from passing on their real estate.

|Prop 22: Rideshare and Delivery Drivers||?||N||$204 M||$20 M||58% 42%||Y - Overrides Assembly Bill 5 (AB 5), which created the presumption that a gig worker is an employee, rather than an independent contractor. So yes means they are independent contractors and Uber , Lyft, and DoorDash do not have to provide benefits.
N - drivers are classified as employees and must receive benefits.
