Unofficial results from the Alameda County registrar show Livermore voters approved Measure W, which would save the city dollars by switching its council and mayoral elections from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years.
With all 54 precincts reporting, Measure W took 77 percent of the vote. It needed 51 percent of the vote to pass.
Meanwhile, nearly 53 percent of voters rejected Measure X.
Further details on each measure here:
Measure W (needs 51 percent to pass)
If passed, Measure W would change the city's council and mayoral elections date from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years — about a $250,000 savings the city would realize per election starting in 2014. Measure W would also extend the current city council and mayor terms by a year.
Measure X (needs 51 percent to pass)
If voters decide against immediately changing the city's council and mayoral elections date from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years, Measure X — if passed — would add an extra year to incoming council members and mayor at the general municipal elections in 2013 and 2015. Cost for this option would be $750,000 and savings would not be realized until 2018.
