Thirty Years of California Library Ballot Measures, 1980-2009Website or Online Data - 2010
"This comprehensive report covers 307 library-related ballot measures held in 95 out of 181 library jurisdictions across the state. Almost 54% of the ballot measures passed, with approval rates increasing slightly over each of the past three decades. General tax measures requiring a simple majority passed 77% of the time, while special tax measures requiring a supermajority (2/3 approval) passed 45% of the time. Ballot measures for facilities only were most successful, while measures seeking funds for both facilities and operations were least successful."
