One of the questions before voters in California would expand the right to vote in state primaries to people who can see R-rated movies on their own. Prop 18 would give people 17-year-olds the right to vote in primaries if they turn 18 before the general election.

Here's what your vote would mean:

A "yes" vote supports this constitutional amendment to allow 17-year-olds who will be 18 at the time of the next general election to vote in primary elections and special elections.

A "no" vote opposes this constitutional amendment, thereby continuing to prohibit 17-year-olds who will be 18 at the time of the next general election to vote in primary elections and special elections.

If passed, Proposition 18 would allow 17-year-olds who will be 18 at the time of the next general election to vote in primary elections and special elections.

If you're a 17-year-old who has a birthday in August, you aren't allowed to vote in California's primary, even though you'll be eligible to vote by the November election. Prop. 18 would change that and grant those 17-year-olds the right to vote in California's primary elections (currently held in March).

Kris Ankarlo breaks down both sides of the issue for us in the latest episode of Propositioned.
