ELECTION RESULTS: March 2017 school bonds and levies

BOISE - School districts across the state are asking voters to approve funding for various projects - from building new schools to repairs and maintenance - during the March 14 election.

A note about levies and bonds: Supplemental levies require a simple majority (over 50 percent) approval to pass, while general obligation bonds require a supermajority (two-thirds) approval.

A number of so-called plant facilities levies are also up for vote. The majority approval required for these levies is dependent on the percentage of market value indebtedness the levy would incur. It's usually between 55 percent and two-thirds majority approval.

Results will post next to the school district as soon as they come in.
