Making Sense of California's Bewildering Ballot There's no question that Barack Obama is largely responsible for what's expected to be a record turnout all over the country. In California, same-sex marriage is also a big attraction. But what about all that other stuff? California voters are faced with dozens of choices—on the presidency, the congress, the state legislature, county and city offices--even judgeships. There are ballot measures to raise money, change government policies and cope with social issues. If you can't keep track of it all, you're not alone.
