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 7 - What is it about?

Proposition 7 is all about daylight saving time, and how time can remain constant in California. 

Right now Arizona and Hawaii are the only states that don't observe daylight saving time and therefore don't ever spring forward or fall back during the year. 

California would be exactly the opposite and permanently observe daylight savings time and therefore would always have the same time as Arizona.

Part of the year we’ll have the same time as the other Mountain Time states and the rest of the year we’ll be in line with Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. 

Daylight saving time gives one hour more of daylight to work with throughout the day, with more being in the afternoon and less in the mornings. 

Those against Proposition 7 say that this will mean people will head to work and school while it's still dark. However, those in favor site studies saying that changing the time twice a year is unhealthy for our body's natural rhythm. 

What would happen if passed?

If passed, Proposition 7 still has to get approval by the government, as it has to sign off on any decision regarding time changes to California. 

What does my vote mean?

YES: California will permanently stay on one time throughout the year pending approval from the federal government 

NO: California will continue the practice of daylight saving time and change clocks twice per year
