November 15
August 30
November 8 is the twelfth date in 2011 when local ballot measure elections took place in California.

It featured at least 90 local ballot measure contests in at least 24 of California's 58 counties, and one recall question.[1]

Compared to other years

The number of local ballot measure elections held on November 8 was a steep decline from the number of local ballot measure elections held in the previous three Novembers in California. Elections held in even-numbered years historically attract much higher numbers than those held in odd-numbered years. Comparing the number of local ballot measure elections on November 8, 2011 just to those on the November 3, 2009 ballot indicated a 30% decline in the number of measures on the ballot in these two odd-numbered years.

Local ballot measure frequency in November elections:

November election # of measures # of counties
November 4, 2008 380
November 3, 2009 122 22
November 2, 2010 342 50
November 8, 2011 90 24

Bonds and taxes

56 of the 90 measures on the November 8 ballot pertained to local tax and bond measures. Of the 56 that related to local bond and tax measures, voters approved 40, or close to 72%.

Type of tax or bond Approved Defeated Total
Business 6 1 7
Hotel 5 0 5
Parcel (non-school) 9 4 13
Parcel (school) 5 2 7
Sales 5[2] 4 9
Utility User Taxes 3 3 6
Bonds (city) 1 0 1
Bonds (schools) 6 2 8
Totals: 40 (71.5%) 16 (28.5%) 56

The eight school bond measures added up to a total request for $1.315 billion. The six that were approved came to a total request of $711 million (or 54.6% of the total that was requested). This contrasts to 2010, when voters approved a little over $5 billion in school bond requests, and November 2008, when voters approved $22 billion of borrowing in 87 school districts.

  1. Historically, eleven county election offices -- those in Amador County, Del Norte County, El Dorado County, Glenn County, Inyo County, Kings County, Modoc County, Napa County, Nevada County, Tuolumne County and Yuba County -- do not list local ballot measure contests on their websites until after the election has taken place. See November 2, 2010 election in California.
