SACRAMENTO, California: Today Ballotpedia is sponsoring a "Tweet-a-Prop" event from 1-5 p.m. PST to help encourage conversation about the 5 statewide ballot propositions on the June 8 ballot.

Only an hour into the tweet-a-thon and already the debate is hot with commentary from both supporters and opponents of the five statewide measures. Most popular among tweeters has been Proposition 15. If enacted, the measure assess fees on registered lobbyists in California and use the additional revenue to provide some funding for political campaigns for those running for the Office of the California Secretary of State.
