Have you ever wondered something about politics or government in California and wished you could have help finding the answer?
• What caused California’s homelessness crisis?
• How do state auto emissions rules work and how might they change?
• What is voter fraud, and is it common?
PolitiFact California sifts through questions like these to find the truth, and we want your help. We know you're curious about politicians, laws and how the state works, and we want to work together to find the answers.
That's why we're starting a new project called ‘Ask PolitiFact California.’ Shoot us a question, and one of our reporters and fact-checkers might reach out to find the answer.
Together we'll learn more about our state.
Here’s how it works:
1. You send in your questions using the form below.
2. We’ll ask you to vote on which one we should tackle next.
3. Then we’ll search for answers and include the question-asker in the process.
We’re looking forward to the journey. Come along and Ask PolitiFact California!
