Unless the proposition receives two-thirds of the votes cast at the election the county or part thereof shall not be annexed to the district. If the proposition carries by two-thirds or more of the votes cast at the election the result of the election shall be certified to the Secretary of State by the county elections official and thereupon the Secretary of State shall give notice and call for protests in the same manner as upon the original incorporation of the district.

The petition shall be presented to the Secretary of State, who shall give notice of the presentation thereof, and of the date set for receiving protests against the annexation in the same manner as for original petitions, and all of the provisions of this part which are applicable to original petitions shall be applicable to petitions for annexations.
