At the Measure S party at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, supporters check election results before the final count came in.

Measure S, the school parcel tax, failed to pass. The measure received 61% of the vote, but 2/3 (67%) was needed to pass. All 31 precincts in the school district have reported.

This is the fifth time the district has failed to pass a parcel tax since 1999.
