San Francisco + San José + Oakland

Ballots and Brews

5:00 p.m. | Thursday, October 15, 2020

On November 3, residents across the Bay Area will head to the voting booth. Instead of blindly facing a slew of complex measures in the ballot box, take advantage of SPUR’s rigorous analysis process and join our policy staff in an annual tradition, now online, as they explain the ballot over beers. We’ll be examining the state-level measures first, and then splitting up into groups to provide insight and answers about the ballots for San Francisco, San José and Oakland.
