The June 8, 2010 election in California included a number of notable statewide and local ballot measures, in addition to the primary election contests on the ballot for Governor of California, Attorney General, other statewide elected officials, members of the U.S. Congress, seats in the state senate and in the state assembly.

A total of 108 local ballot measures, including two recall questions, were on local California ballots on June 8, in 31 of California's 58 counties.

Of the 108 local measures, 76 were approved and 32 were defeated. In both local recall elections, the recall target was recalled.

Twenty-three parcel tax measures were on the June 8 ballot. 17 of them (74%) were approved. Of the parcel tax measures on the June 8 ballot, eleven were for school funding and twelve were for non-school taxing districts, including libraries, cities and so on. A notable school parcel tax on the June 8 ballot was the San Mateo Community College parcel tax, Measure G, which narrowly passed. Measure G was the first time a community college parcel tax was on a California ballot.

Nine zoning, land use and development measures were on the June 8 ballot, including the much commented-upon Santa Clara Stadium for the 49ers, Measure J.
