Voters Approve 69% of School Tax Issues

November 08, 2018 11:07 AM | Ohio ACTE (Administrator)

Voters across Ohio approved 121 of 175 public school district tax issues during the Nov. 7 general election. Sixty-nine percent of the school tax issues on the ballot passed, a decrease from the 2017 general election. Ohio voters approved 89 of 122 school tax issues in November 2017 for a passage rate of 73%.

Forty-three of 94 new school tax issues were approved Tuesday, a passage rate of 46%. This is a decrease from the 2017 general election when 51% of new tax issues passed.

Voters approved 78 of 81 renewal school tax issues on Tuesday’s ballot, a 96% passage rate. This is a slight increase from the 2017 general election when voters approved 90% of the renewal issues. 

Election results are complete but have not been officially certified by the Ohio Secretary of State. Ohio School Boards Association maintains a comprehensive online database on the outcome of school tax issues across the state. The database is available on the association’s website at http://links.ohioschoolboards.org/19699
