At any time after the board of directors of the district has
finally approved the agreement of annexation the board of
supervisors of the county to be annexed shall cause an election to be
held in the county to determine whether the county will be annexed
to the district upon the terms and conditions stated in the
Notice of election shall be published once a week for two
successive weeks (two publications) in a newspaper of general
circulation published within the county, and shall either state that
a copy of the annexation agreement is on file in the office of the
clerk of the county 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 board of supervisors 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:
Shall the County of ________________ | |
be annexed to San Francisco Bay Area | |

with and subject to all the terms | |
and conditions of an agreement of | |
annexation dated _________ now on | |

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.
If the proposition fails to carry, the result shall be
entered upon the minutes of the board of supervisors of the county.
If the proposition receives the vote of the requisite
majority of voters, the board of supervisors of the county 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.
