A Burlingame Elementary School District parcel tax, Measure E ballot question was on the November 8, 2011 ballot for voters in the Burlingame Elementary School District in San Mateo County, where it was approved.[1]

The approval of Measure E means that a parcel tax of $76 per parcel per year will be levied for four (4) years. This would result in $2.35 million over the four years of the proposed tax, or about $589,000 a year.[2]

Voters in the district approved Measure B, a $180/year parcel tax, in March 2010. That tax is set to last for ten years.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for passage.[1]
