Listen up: Audio voting guide released

Watch out, Dean Koontz. California has created a downloadable, audio version of the official voter guide for the upcoming June 3 primary election.

The audio files are playable on a laptop or portable music player.

“The new, downloadable audio version of the voter guide allows people to catch up on elections issues while driving to work, multi-tasking at home or working out at the gym,” said Secretary of State Debra Bowen.

(Yeah, those propositions really make me sweat.)

For the true political junkie, the guide includes an audio of the full text of each ballot proposition, arguments for and against them, and analysis of each from the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst.

It also offers voters information on registering, voting by mail, polling places and volunteering to work in the polls.

Obtain the audio at www.voterguide.sos.ca.gov/audio/.
