The February Special Election includes ballot measures for Paterson, Kiona-Benton City, and Finley School Districts.

Districts may place bond and levy issues on any regularly scheduled election. Each ballot measure may have different requirements for passage. Excess levies for schools are exempt from the 60% super-majority and 40% minimum turnout requirements. Passage of excess levies for schools only requires a simple majority of yes votes.

After certification of the election, the district determines if the ballot measure has passed according to the requirements set in state law.
