Prop. 30 inspires voter registration drives aimed at students

Gov. Jerry Brown's tax hike measure is being touted as the only way to avoid tuition increases this year at California's public universities. Some predict a higher-than-usual turnout.

Cal State L.A. senior Jason Jimenez didn't hesitate when asked recently why he was registering to vote for the first time. "Prop. 30," he said.

Jimenez was referring to the November ballot measure that would temporarily raise state sales taxes and the income taxes of high earners.

According to a recent USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll, 55% of registered voters would approve it, with 36% opposed and the rest undecided. Support was strongest 77% among voters 19 to 29.
