Liberty Now Wiki

These propositions are on California's November 2, 2004, General Election Ballot. See the Secretary of State's list. On this page we will have a very brief summary of the proposition and libertarian opinion. On each proposition's page, there is some official language followed by the libertarian position with discussion on each propositions talk page.

The LPC Executive Committee has taken official positions that are the same as these except for Prop 1A (not considered), Prop 68 (no position). See the The Los Angeles Libertarian or The Libertarian Party of California positions.
