Validation

The State Constitution (Article 7 Section 2) mandates that some levy and bond issues must be approved by not less than a 60% majority of the voters voting on the proposition rather than a simple majority. In addition, there are also provisions that require a minimum participation by eligible voters in order for the proposition to be valid regardless of the outcome of the vote.  This minimum participation is equal to 40% of the total votes cast in the jurisdiction at the previous general election.
