I think the audio voter guide is useful to anyone who likes to listen to things that might be dense to read. Everything is read by a human. If you don't live in California, check your state's web resources for similar options.
You can access an audio version of the Official Voter Information Guide for the November 4th election on the California Secretary of State's website. There are two versions--the whole voter guide as a Zip file or individual sections of the voter guide as mp3 files accessed from the Table of Contents. For each Voter Proposition on the Ballot, there are separate files with the Official Title and Summary, Analysis by the Legislative Analyst, Arguments for and against, and Rebuttals.
