Every election, the SPUR Voter Guide provides in-depth analysis and recommendations on the complex measures up for vote. Join our policy staff in a beloved tradition as they explain the local measures on the November 8 Oakland ballot and SPUR’s stance on each one. Grab your ballot and your brew and join us virtually for this Oakland spotlight! (See October 4 for our event on statewide measures.)
