     It shall be the duty of the board of election commissioners of such county to prepare the necessary ballots for use of the electors in voting upon the question referred to in this act.

     [ ] Yes.
     To authorize the board of supervisors to borrow $....................
     [ ] No.
     There shall be inserted in the above blank the amount set forth in the resolution of the board of supervisors. The ballots so prepared shall be distributed by the board of election commissioners within the same time and in the same manner that ballots are distributed prior to a general election. All ballots upon which an elector marks a cross in the square to the left of the word "Yes" shall be counted in favor of raising the amount stated in the resolution of the board of supervisors, and all ballots upon which an elector marks a cross in the square to the left of the word "No" shall be counted against the question of raising the amount set forth in the resolution of the board of supervisors. All ballots cast at any election on such question, shall be received, counted, canvassed and returned in the manner now governing for the election of county officers. If at any such election a majority of the electors voting on such question shall decide in favor of authorizing the board of supervisors to raise the amount set forth in said resolution, such amount may be borrowed in the same manner as the amounts referred to in section 1 of this act may be borrowed in the 1st instance.
