The election is on Nov. 6 and Action News Now is providing a breakdown for Propositions so that you can be prepared to vote in the 2018 Midterm Elections.

Prop 3 - What is it about? 

Proposition 3 is an $8.8 billion water bond measure. 

The goal of the measure is to fund a variety of projects aimed at providing safe drinking water, repairing unsafe dams and increasing drought protection. 

This is one of four bond issues on the November ballot but funding for these projects will come out of the general fund, meaning taxpayers will be on the hook for the $430 million per year that will be added to California's bond repayments. 

Opponents of this proposition point out that Proposition 3 gives money to a lot of different organizations for a lot of different things, meaning that it could be spread too thin to make enough of an impact.

What does my vote mean? 

YES: The state will be allowed to sell the $8.8 billion in bonds 

NO: The state doesn't get to sell those bonds
