The LA Times Teaches Us How to Elect a Sheriff

Sheriffs have a frankly _weird_ job... and a very important one. Robert Greene, editorial writer for the LA Times focusing on criminal justice, shares with us how to educate yourself to vote well for your Sheriff. We cover the history of Sherifffing in California, how elections have gone in the past, how that's changing nation-wide, and how you can do the research yourself to really understand who you're voting for. Sheriffs have a massive impact on policing policy in your county, so this year is an incredible opportunity for most of us to use the ballot box at the local level to make a difference!
