The election officers shall report to the municipal clerk, immediately after completing
the count of the ballots, a true and correct statement in writing under their hands
of the results of the election and the clerk shall certify the results of the election
to the board of commissioners at its first meeting thereafter, and the same shall
be entered at large in the minutes of the board. The clerk shall also certify the results to the secretary of state. In such certificates the clerk shall specify whether or not a majority of the votes
are in favor of the proposition, and if they are, he shall further specify whether
or not the number of votes cast in favor of the proposition is equal in number to
at least thirty per cent of the number of persons who voted in the municipality at
the last preceding general election.
