Yes on Measure X spokesman Nathan Ballard says it was a tough campaign.

"We’re disappointed. We knew it was an uphill battle from the beginning and I just don’t think the city of Davis was ready for Covell Village at this time."

Measure X lost  60% to 40%.

In other local races: voters in El Dorado Hills defeated Measure P, which would have established the community as an independent city.

Placer County voters supported plans for a proposed university with the approval of Measure H.

And voters in both Yuba and Amador counties rejected measures to build more Indian casinos.
