Among these were 89 ballot questions proposing new revised or extended local bonds or taxes. Local schools requested a total of $6.1817 billion in school construction bond authorizations in 46 individual measures. Three cities sought a total of $442 million in bonds including a $350 million seismic safety bond in San Francisco, a library bond in Santa Cruz County and a roadway and storm drain repair measure in Orinda.
Based on election night counts with 100 percent of all precincts reporting, 70 of the 89 tax and bond measures have passed. Several others are too close to call. All majority vote city tax proposals passed except perhaps one: a one percent sales tax measure in Compton that currently is too close to call at 49.5 percent yes. All seven school parcel tax measures passed and 41 out of 46 school bonds were approved.
