Election 2018 is in full swing -- and now is the time to start figuring out how you're going to vote!

We're holding discussions with panelists who, whether they are "for, " against" or "neutral," will give us the straight talk on local/statewide propositions and races, and what it means if you vote yay or nay on each.

Of the 11 propositions on the ballot this year, four of them are focused on housing. In this podcast, we take a look at:

* Proposition 1, about issuing $4 billion in general bonds for affordable-housing-related programs and housing loans for veterans.

* Proposition 2, about letting the state use revenue from the "millionaire's tax" on $2 billion in revenue bonds to house homeless people in need of mental health services.
