A Cosumnes Community Services District Board Member Divisions, Measure S ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the Cosumnes Community Services District in Sacramento County, California, where it was defeated.

If Measure S had been approved, the way that members of the board of the district are elected would have changed. Heading into the election on Measure S, members of the board were elected at-large, and could reside anywhere in the district. If Measure S had been approved, this would have changed so that the district would have been divided into five geographical jurisdictions with approximately equal populations, and one board member would have been elected from each of those regions.
