    Among the troubling aspects of Prop 24 is its expansion of “pay for privacy” through the addition of loyalty and rewards programs, allowing businesses to charge consumers more or provide worse service if they choose to exercise their privacy rights. It also weakens the current legal requirement that companies respect a global opt-out for all services.
  • PROP 25 End Cash Money Bail ————————————LWVC vote YES
    A "yes"vote on Prop 25 is a vote to replace the money bail system with the use of pretrial risk assessment tools that focus on safety and flight risk.
