In South Carolina, two types of elections are mandated involving school finance. South Carolina requires ballot questions to issue new bonding and to exceed the fifteen mill levy limit. South Carolina is one of a handful of states that expresses levy caps using the basic mill rate formula over a lengthy mathematical formula. South Carolina runs all school bond elections as special elections regardless on which date the election is held.
