... On Tuesday, Hayward voters also backed Measure T, which would increase the real property transfer tax in Hayward from $4.50 per $1,000 to $8.50. The tax is assessed when property is sold.
The measure received about 57.96 percent of the vote, according to a tally released Wednesday morning from the Alameda County Registrar of Voters. The tax would raise an estimated $13 million annually for city services.
