The May 2011 Election had only one item on the ballot: Measure A, which asks, "Recognizing cuts in state funding, shall the Davis Joint Unified School District be authorized to levy an emergency special tax for a period of two years not to exceed the annual rate of $20.00 per dwelling unit for multi-dwelling parcels and $200.00 per parcel for all other parcels, to fund essential school programs including core subjects, elective classes, reduced class sizes, counselors and school site safety?"

This was Davis' first mail-only election. The ballots were to be mailed to local voters on April 4 and are due back by 8 p.m., May 3. The measure required 2/3 approval in order to pass.

As of 9:52 PM, May 3 (unlikely to change):

Bob Dunning had predicted "on an uncluttered ballot with only one choice to be made, Measure A will carry the day with 70.2 percent of the vote … but don’t bet the mortgage on it"

Columnist Rich Rifkin had predicted a 67.2% margin.
