The San Ramon Valley Unified School District's $260 million bond measure appears headed for passage.
The latest totals released Saturday morning by the Contra Costa Elections Department show Measure D now with 56.49 percent of the vote. A 55 percent plurality is needed.
On Election Night almost two weeks ago, the school facilities bond had garnered 55.19 percent.
There are now 36,136 "yes" votes. That's 5,914 more than the measure had a couple days ago.
There are 27,837 "no" votes. That's 3,719 more than a couple days ago.
Contra Costa County Clerk Steve Weir said his office still has 1,600 "late conditional" ballots to count as well as 23,000 provisional ballots. It's not known what part of the county those ballots are from.
Weir said almost all of the late conditional ballots will qualify for the county. Historically, 80 percent of provisional ballots are determined to be legal. Provisional ballots are those cast at the polls where the voter's eligibility to cast a ballot is in question.
Measure D would pay for campus upgrades and improve technology in classrooms. In addition, the measure would address overcrowding issues at campuses in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
Among the Measure D projects include:
- Technology infrastructure improvements for 21st century learning.
- Additional classrooms/facilities to prevent overcrowding and better ensure that students can attend neighborhood schools.
- Modernization of classrooms, science labs, facilities and sites to support instruction.
- Energy efficiency and cost-saving improvements.
- Fire, security and earthquake safety improvements.
- Projects to keep schools/facilities/sites safe, clean and well-maintained.
