Well, we checked in with the Alameda County Registrar of Voters, and it’s official: Measure H is a done deal. The registrar certified the election results a little over a week ago, and no one has asked the county for a recount of the results, they said. Any voter could have challenged the results within five days of the certification, but it didn’t happen. The temporary parcel tax, which looked down for the count right after the election, bounced into the win column eight days after the June 3 election and stayed there to finish. The measure passed 11,445 to 5,663, with 66.9 percent of voters in favor. You can view the official results and get a whole lot more detail on the election here.

On a related note, the school board is holding a special meeting tonight where they’ll discuss Superintendent Ardella Dailey’s contract. (Since contracts are a personnel matter, the board will discuss it in closed session.) The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. and will be held in the superintendent’s conference room at the district offices, 2200 Central Avenue. The agenda is here.
