California's Exclusive Electorate
PPIC's At Issue series focuses on issues important for California now and in the future. In this issue, PPIC research director Mark Baldassare provides an objective picture of California's "exclusive" electorate--the likely voters who decide who's elected and the fate of the state's many ballot initiatives, but who do not represent the size, the makeup, or the preferences of the state's adult population. How has this happened, why does it matter, and what might be done to create a more representative electorate?
