I would say "this past May" or, if there's a past tense verb in the sentence already, just "May". "I graduated in May and now I'm a credentialed ninja" can only mean May of 2012 in my dialect.

I didn't answer the poll because "last May" is EXTREMELY ambiguous in a sentence spoken in August, and I would want to clarify with an extra word or two ("May of last year" etc.).
