What is the difference between a "regular majority" and a "super majority?"

"Regular majority" and "super majority" are terms referring to the number of votes required to approve a measure. 

Regular majority measures require a total "yes" vote count of 50% plus 1 of the filed ballots for approval. Super majority measures require a total "yes" vote count of 60% of the filed ballots for approval. 

Currently, the Washington State Legislature dictates that school levies require a regular majority (50% plus 1) to pass while school bonds require a super majority (60%). 

The Woodland Public Schools' EP&O levy requires a regular majority (50% plus 1) for approval.
