Virginia is different from other states as the state does not assess property taxes at the statewide level. The mandate for a ballot question for issuing new bonding or to extend a bond depends on who proposes the ballot question. If a county wants to provide bonding to two or more school divisions a ballot question is required. If the request comes from a single school division or from a individual municipal government, no ballot question is required.
