discretion of the board.

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 set forth in the ordinance 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.
If the proposition is defeated by the voters, no annexation
proceeding shall be commenced involving the territory or any part
thereof until after the expiration of one year.
