Local Tax Elections:
More Than 241 Tax and Bond Measures on Local Ballots in November

When Californians go to the polls November 6, they will decide the fate of more than 241 local bond and tax measures, including proposed taxes on property, sales, hotel bills, marijuana, utilities, card rooms and sugary drinks.

If all of the school bonds are approved, property owners in districts throughout the state will be on the hook for repaying more than $14.5 billion in new bond debt.

CalTax compiled the table below based on information from county elections offices, media reports and local governments. The table also is available online, where it is updated as any new information becomes available.
