A Buellton Union School District bond proposition, Measure V was on the June 5, 2012 ballot for voters in the Buellton Union School District in Santa Barbara County, where it was very narrowly approved.[1]

The approval of Measure V means that the school district will be authorized to enter into an 11-year extension of an existing bond; doing this will generate $3.2 million of new cash for the district, but will not raise the tax rate being paid by property owners on the existing bond.

A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for approval.
