Here’s a roundup of ballot measures and latest results.

PROPOSITION C

Vaping products will remain banned in San Francisco.

A total 80% of voters rejected Proposition C, which was the measure to overturn the vaping products ban in the city.

Proposition A passed with 69% of the vote.

It will help low-income residents, seniors, and teachers.

Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors backed the measure.

It’s considered to be the city’s largest affordable housing bond ever.

PROPOSITION D

Uber and Lyft rides are about to get more expensive in San Francisco.

A total 67% of voters approved Proposition D, which would tax rideshare companies between 1.5% and 3.25% for every ride.

The tax would bring up to $32 million for transit improvements.
