Two City of Lynwood Utility Users Tax ballot questions, Measures HH and II, were on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of Lynwood in Los Angeles County. Both measures were approved.

Measure HH was an advisory measure. It asked whether the city should prioritize the use of utility tax revenues in the areas of "law enforcement, gang suppression, crime and drug intervention, graffiti abatement, and prosecution of those engaged in prostitution."

Measure II reduced the existing utility users tax in Inglewood to 9% but extended it to more utilities, thus creating an overall tax increase for the city.
