Malibu voters strongly supported a $385 million bond measure for improvements to facilities and technology at local schools.
Out of 5,346 ballots cast within Malibu on Tuesday, 2,460 voted yes on Measure ES while 1,888 voted no, according to data released from the L.A. County Registrar of Voters.
Twenty percent of the Measure ES funds will automatically go toward Malibu schools. A special committee of Malibu residents will ultimately decide how those funds will be used.
While voters supported the bond measure -- which will cost Malibu home owners an average of $30 per $100,000 of assessed value, so $300 for homes worth $1 million -- they turned down two statewide propositions, 30 and 38.
Some 3,692 Malibu voters rejected Proposition 38, which would have increased the income tax rate on most Californians for 12 years. Only 1,225 voted yes for Prop. 38.
Proposition 30, a $6 billion a year tax increase package that helps avoid further cuts to public education, narrowly failed in Malibu, with 2,518 voting yes and 2,527 voting no. Statewide, Prop. 30 passed with 59.9 percent of the vote.
If Prop. 30 had not passed, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District would have been faced with $5 million in cuts.
