The San Ramon Valley Democratic Club, Lamorinda Democratic Club, Tri-Valley Democratic Club and the Diablo Valley Democratic Club invite you to a Public Forum on the California Ballot Initiatives on the November 2016 election. There are 17 ballot initiatives and 2 tax measures on the November ballot. Clearly voters can be easily overwhelmed.
