Expanding Opportunity: An Agenda for All Californians

2018 is a transition year in California politics and public policy.

Voters will elect a new Governor, replace at least seven constitutional officers and seat at least 10 new members of the Legislature. Democrats in the Senate have pegged a new leader, and voters will decide the fate of at least one recall election and three legislative special elections.

Voters will also practice direct democracy in November.
