In 2022, California Voters Will Vote Locally on Housing

While there is no statewide housing measure on the ballot in California this November as there has been in recent elections, voters are likely to face a wide range of local decisions related to housing and homelessness. A new commentary from our Policy Director David Garcia and Policy Associate Muhammad Alameldin highlights the key themes in local housing measures across the state. In particular, voters may be asked to weigh in on their city or county’s approach to changes to zoning rules, approve sources of funding for housing and homelessness prevention, and expand tenant protections. The analysis also includes a list of all 52 housing-related measures on the ballot that our team has tracked. Read the full commentary here.
