The question on the ballot:

MEASURE C: In order to improve local schools and classrooms by making health and safety improvements to campuses, upgrading restrooms, plumbing, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, fixing leaking roofs, expanding student access to computers and technology, and removing or replacing outdated portables, shall Mark West Union School District be authorized to issue up to $14,000,000 in bonds at lawful interest rates, with annual audits, citizen oversight, and no money for administrators' salaries?[1]

Ballot mistake

The Mark West Union School District Measure C was mistakenly included on absentee ballots sent to about 15,600 registered Democratic voters in the Petaluma and south county area of Sonoma. They were not eligible to vote on the measure, which is for voters in the Santa Rosa and Larkfield areas. Those voters who received the mistakenly printed ballot received a second, corrected ballot, along with instructions.[2]
