A Le Grand Union High School District Bond Issue, Measure N ballot question was on the June 3, 2014 election ballot for voters in the Le Grand Union High School District in Merced County, California, where it was very narrowly approved.[1]

Measure N authorized the Le Grand Union High School district, which had over 500 students in 2014, to increase its debt by $4.2 million through issuing general obligation bonds in that amount. Repaying the bonds cost district taxpayers $30 per $100,000 of assessed property value. Some of the Measure N bond money was earmarked for the renovation of the Le Grand High School football stadium.[2]

A 55% supermajority vote was required for approval of Measure N.
