If you haven’t voted in the Davis Measure A election yet, time is running out.
How to vote
Ballots are due by 8 p.m. on Tuesday. Ballots can be dropped off in a specially marked box at the library at 315 E. 14th St. in Davis, or at the county elections office, Room B-05 at the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.
Remember that there are no neighborhood polling places in this election – it’s all vote by mail, so you will not be able to drop your ballot off at a neighborhood polling place.
What’s Measure A?
In response to severe budget pressures, the Davis Joint Unified School District is seeking an additional $200 parcel tax on Davis properties.
If Measure A passes, it will only be allowed to be used for:
- Continued availability of classes in core subjects such as science and history
- Continued reduced class sizes for K-6 and English and math classes
- Continued availability of multiple foreign language programs
- Continued availability of elective course offerings such as art and career/technical education
- Retaining counseling staff
- Continued availability of school site safety and support staff
The measure cannot pass without the approval of two-thirds of voters.
