Proposition G would essentially bar so-called "project labor agreements,'' which are pacts between a municipality and unions before construction starts that establish the wages and benefits the workers on a public project must be paid by contractors.
In Coronado, Proposition H was opposed by 69.6 percent of voters with absentee ballots counted. The advisory measure asked voters if the city should continue to seek federal, state and local money to complete a study on ways to mitigate traffic congestion, including construction of a tunnel between the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge and Naval Air Station North Island. City officials have said it will cost $2 million to complete the study.

In Oceanside, 54.2 percent of the voters were in favor of Proposition K, with only absentee ballots counted. Proposition K asks voters if they want to make Oceanside a charter city. If approved, the charter would serve as the constitution for the city of Oceanside. Oceanside is now a general law city subject to certain state laws on how it should be governed.
