I need a democratic voter guide for California

My mail in ballot doesn't have all the democrats listed.

Where can I find a voter guide for California election???


Gov. Newsom will call special legislative session to impose windfall tax on oil companies

"It's time to get serious, I'm sick of this," Newsom said on Friday. "This is one of the greatest fleecings for consumers in world history."

The governor has requested the Legislature approve a measure that would require oil companies to pay back excessive profits to consumers through a new tax. The Legislature finished policymaking for the year on Aug. 31 and canít begin action on proposals until January, unless the governor calls the special legislative session.

Newsom said Friday he chose Dec. 5 because that is when the Legislature was already scheduled to reconvene briefly to swear-in new state lawmakers after the election. He said his office wants time to make sure the proposal is on solid, legal ground in anticipation of lawsuits from the oil industry.
