CUPERTINO (KCBS) – With just days before the big election, some college students in Silicon Valley are finding creative ways to influence voters, and Thursday’s Prop 23 “zombie march,” was a case-in-point. The Prop 23 protest at Cupertino’s De Anza College featured a dozen students dressed up as zombies.

KCBS’ Matt Bigler Reports:

Organizer Emily Kenner says the goal of their “Zombie crawl” was to educate voters that Prop 23 would repeal California’s climate change legislation.

”Stiffiling all of our global warming legislation is going to have a huge negative effect on things such as air quality in California if we don’t have to reduce our emissions as AB32 dictates,” said Kenner.

But supporters of 23 say AB32 will cost California too much in a sluggish economy.

”The additional cost associated with utilities after using much more renewable energy is going to significantly increase utilities,” said Tom Robinson is the President of Robinson Oil, which owns Rotten Robbie gas stations.
