Updated election results indicate that only one of the six local taxes in March 2 elections was approved by voters.
All of the measures would earmark revenue for specific purposes, making them special taxes that require at least two-thirds of the vote to pass.
The final official vote count for a parcel tax placed on the ballot by the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District indicated that with 700 ballots cast, the measure fell three votes short of passing.
