The landowners of a defined area of territory not included in a district may file
with the secretary of the board a petition requesting an election on the inclusion
of the territory in a district. The petition must:
(1) be signed by registered voters residing in the territory equal in number to at
least five percent of the number of votes received in the territory to be included
by all candidates in the most recent gubernatorial general election; and
(2) describe by metes and bounds the territory to be included in the district.
