I first learned of the US Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia when I was researching constitutional laws and court cases regarding same-sex marriages. The SCOTUS decision overturned Virginia’s law against interracial marriages and ended all state’s raced-based restrictions on marriage.
In 1966, interracial marriages were illegal in 17 states. Before this court case, interracial bans were considered legal as long as both parties were equally punished.

On May 19, there’s a special statewide election for California. There are six propositions on the ballot and each related to the statewide budget. The propositions, summaries, and commentaries are provided below.
I’m still debating several of these. I’ll solidify my decisions a few days before election day when I put the stamp on my ballot.
