Article 3. Approval By City of California Public Utilities Code >> Division 10. >> Part 8. >> Chapter 8. >> Article 3.
At any time after the board has finally approved the
agreement of annexation the legislative body of the city to be
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.
The city shall cause to be held, concurrent with the
annexation election, an election for the purpose of selecting one
board member for the district in the event the annexation is
successful. The initial member elected to represent the city on the
board of directors shall serve until a successor is elected at the
next succeeding election of directors within the city and qualifies.
Notice of election shall be published as provided in Section
6066 of the Government Code 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:
Shall the __________ (city) | |
be annexed to the San Diego | |
County Transit District in | |

to all of the terms and | |
conditions of an agreement | |
of annexation dated ______ | |
now on file in the office | |
of the clerk of | |
________ (city)? +---------+---------
| NO |
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 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.
