(a) Except as provided by Subsection (b) of this section, if an election is held under
this subchapter another election for the purpose of adopting or repealing the limited
period of free range may not be held in that county or area within two years after
the date of the election.
(b) If the limited period of free range is defeated at a countywide election, this
section does not prohibit another election on the proposition from being held immediately
thereafter for an area within the county. If the limited period of free range is defeated at an election in an area within
a county, no other election covering that area may be held except an election in the
same area, which must be held at least one year after the prior election.
(c) If at a subsequent election in a county or area that has adopted the limited period
of free range the majority of votes are cast against the proposition, the limited
period of free range is repealed and a person may not permit hogs to run at large
in that county or area effective on the 11th day following the day on which the proclamation
is issued. If the majority of the votes are cast for the proposition, the operation of the
limited period of free range is not affected.
