Proposition 20 – Increase the Number of People Locked Up in Prisons

September 11, 2020

Vote No to protect the progress we’ve made to undo mass incarceration. This measure reverses the progress made in moving funding towards education and prevention and away from incarceration. It increases the number of people locked up in prisons.

Specifically, this proposition reclassifies repeated theft as a felony, enables tougher penalties for those violating parole multiple times and limits early parole.
