At any time after the board has finally approved the

annexed shall cause an election to be held in the city to determine
whether the city will be annexed to the district upon the terms and
conditions stated in the agreement.
Notice of election shall be published as provided in Section
24533 and shall either state that a copy of the annexation agreement
is on file in the office of the secretary or clerk of the city
proposed to be annexed, and open to the inspection of all persons
interested, or set forth the terms and conditions of the agreement of
annexation at length, in the discretion of the legislative body
calling the election.
The ballots for the election shall contain substantially the
instructions required to be printed on ballots for use at general
state and county elections and in addition shall set forth the
proposition of annexation substantially as follows:

annexed to _______ transit | |
district in accordance with and | YES |
subject to all of the terms and | |
conditions of an agreement | |
of annexation dated _______ now | |

If upon a canvass of the election it is found that a
majority of all votes cast on the proposition at the election were
cast in favor of the annexation, the proposition and all of the terms
and conditions of the agreement of annexation shall be deemed
carried and approved by the voters; except that if the terms and
conditions of the agreement of annexation provide for the assumption
of any indebtedness of the district by any city proposed to be
annexed, the proposition of annexation shall not be deemed carried
unless approved by the vote of two-thirds of all the voters voting on
the proposition at the election.
If the proposition fails to carry, the result shall be
entered upon the minutes of the governing body of the city.
If the proposition receives the vote of the requisite
majority of voters the governing body of the city shall enter in its
minutes an order declaring the result of the election and shall
thereupon cause the agreement of annexation to be executed by its
duly authorized officers.
