A supermajority requirement is when a ballot measure must win more than 50% of the vote in order to be approved.
Examples of supermajority requirements:
- Parcel tax elections in California. Local parcel tax ballot measures must win a 2/3rds supermajority in order to pass.
- California school bond elections. Local school bond ballot propositions require a 55% supermajority vote to pass.
