An Alameda County Vehicle Registration Fee, Measure F ballot question was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in Alameda County in California, where it was approved.[1]

The ballot proposition added $10 to the fees associated with registering a vehicle in the county. At the time of its passage, it was estimated that the new tax/fee generated an estimated $11 million per year for the county. A simple majority vote was required to enact the new tax.

The Alameda County Congestion Management Agency board voted to put the measure on the ballot. So-called "county congestion agencies" were allowed to place measures like this on the ballot under a law passed by the California State Legislature in October 2009.
