Election Day is Today for Aug. 7 School Levies

Molly Bloom / StateImpact Ohio

Today, voters in 34 school districts across Ohio face elections on their local school districts’ tax rates. Most of those elections are for new taxes, mostly in the form of property taxes rather than income taxes.

Expect to see dozens more school levies on the November ballot though, including levies in Cleveland, Toledo and Akron. Columbus put off its next levy request until 2013.

The full list of August 2012 school issues is below.

Note: An earlier version of this post misstated the total number of school districts with questions on the ballot. The correct number is 34. Also, a table in an earlier version of this post incorrectly described the Groveport Madison levy. It is a substitute levy.
