Local Ballot Measures
Results show out of 458,719 ballots counted, 56% were against and 44% were for the Sacramento County sales tax for transportation projects. The "no" votes have led since Election Day and the measure is poised to lose.
Measure A would increase the county’s local sales tax rate by a half-cent to fund projects and services across the region, including building new roads and expanding light rail.
The tax measure would raise about $8.5 billion over 40 years. Measure A requires a simple majority vote to pass.
Latest results show out of 136,858 ballots counted, 63% were for and 37% were against the city of Sacramento youth funding measure. Measure L, which is likely to pass once all the ballots are counted, would require the city to spend the “equivalent” of 40% of the cannabis business tax revenue from the general fund annually on youth programs.
The city estimates about $10 million per year could go to services such as mental health counseling and after school activities. Measure L requires a simple majority vote to pass.
Results from Tuesday show out of 134,420 ballots counted, 52% were for and 48% were against the measure that would ban homeless encampments from public property.
Measure O would require the city of Sacramento to offer available shelter spaces before issuing misdemeanor charges to people living in encampments who refuse to move.
The measure also requires the city to approve hundreds of shelter spaces if it has a budget surplus. But the city has forecasted a multi-million deficit for homeless shelter funding.
If passed by a simple majority, Measure O could go into effect after the city and county sign an agreement outlining services for unhoused people. The city and county are set to vote on an agreement Tuesday, Dec. 6.
