The Yes on Measure B logo

City Hall will remain open until 8 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, May 3) to accommodate voters who want to turn in their ballots in the special election to decide Measure B, the emergency funding measure for the New Haven Unified School District.
Measure B, the “Taking Care of Our Kids” parcel tax, would raise approximately $3 million to minimize class size increases and reductions to the school year and to fund after-school activities. Due to state budget cuts, New Haven Unified is facing a $10 million budget deficit for the 2011-12 school year.
