School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in West Virginia

West Virginia requires school districts to put a question on the ballot for exceeding the levy cap, issuing new bonding and or bond taxes. In West Virginia, levy caps are set on four different classes of property in which results in four different levy limits. In order to pass a levy cap election, a simple majority is required. Any election that requires new bonding or bond taxes must pass through a super-majority of three-fifths (60%) to gain voter approval. Also, school districts are required to have a cost estimate from civil engineer and have approval of the West Virginia Attorney General before having bonds issued.

2011 proposed succession

In 2011 proposed legislation was set froth to possibly ask, in a non-binding vote, if residents in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties want to secede from West Virginia and become a part of Virginia state. Delegate Larry Kump proposed the legislation and noted it was just there to get an idea of resident's position on the issue and if it would be viable. While others noted it is as if those residents are suggesting they are not good enough for the state.[1]
