School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in North Dakota

In North Dakota, voting can occur on three different kinds of school tax levy ballot measures:

  • General fund levy-This is for basic funding of the school districts operations such as maintenance costs, teacher salaries and basic operating costs.
  • Capital Improvement levy-This is to fund new construction and capital improvements for school districts as this is a separate levy.
  • Distance Learning fund levy-This levy is designed for school districts to create a levy only for distance learning programs.

North Dakota is one of a few states to have tough super majority requirements for voter approval. Any levy for capital improvements must have a three-fifths (60%) super-majority vote while any general fund levy election question must have a fifty-five percent super majority. A distance learning levy only requires a simple majority.
