procedure: Upon the filing with the township clerk, of a petition signed by not less
than 100 duly and legally qualified electors of such township praying therein for
the submission of this question to the electors of their township, the township board
shall thereupon meet and order the submission of the question to the electors of the
township at the next regular election, which supplies ample time for proper notices
and printing of ballots, or at a special election to be called for that purpose in
the discretion of the township board; notices of such submission, the posting thereof,
publication thereof, and contents thereof to be governed by the general laws pertaining
to regular township elections. Votes on the question of the adoption of the provisions of this act shall be taken,
counted and canvassed in the same manner as votes cast for candidates voted for in

of this question shall be requested by the requisite number of qualified petitioners
of such township, and when voted shall be deposited in a ballot box provided for that
