A Merced County Voter Confirmation of Zoning Changes, Measure D ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Merced County.[1] It was defeated.

Measure D was put on the ballot by the County Board of Supervisors to create exemptions to Measure C.[1]

Measure C was placed on the ballot via the initiative process and was originally known as the Save Farmland Initiative. It was regarded as a "slow growth" plan. It would have required a public vote whenever 10 or more acres change from agricultural or open space to residential use.[1]

The Merced County Board of Supervisors voted to put a competing measure, Measure D, on the same ballot. If Measure D had been approved, it would have exempted 2,437 acres in the county from Measure C's provisions.[1]
