SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The primary election is June 7, so you still have a few weeks to get up to speed on some of the ballot propositions.

In San Diego, there are nine propositions on the June ballot, letters A through H, which may seem complicated, but they actually aren't.

The president of the League of Women Voters said most of these propositions are just small fixes and updates to the 85 year-old-city charter.

But Prop-H, which involves the creation of an infrastructure fund, and Prop I, which would raise the minimum wage in San Diego are more controversial.

Prop-H, which supporters call "Rebuild San Diego" would set aside a portion of the general fund for improving streets, sidewalks and other infrastructure projects.

Critics said it's a token gesture, but advocates argue at least it's a start.

Sick leave and wages are the subject of Prop-I, which would boost earned sick days from 3 to 5 and raise the minimum wage to $10.50 in 2016 and up to $11.50 by next year.

Voters will get to decide all nine measures in just a few weeks.

The last day to register to vote in the primary is May 23rd.
