    Sec. 20. Additional precinct.
    (a) If the creation of an existing program was initiated by petition and if a precinct was excluded from the territory because the requisite number of signatures was not obtained as provided in subsection (a) of Section 15, the excluded precinct may be added to the territory of the program as provided in this Section.
    (b) If a petition signed by not less than 10% of the total number of registered voters of the precinct is filed with the proper election authority, and if the governing commission consents, by ordinance or resolution, to adding the excluded precinct to the territory of the program, the election authority shall submit the question of adding the excluded precinct to the territory of the program to the electors of the excluded precinct at the regular election specified in the petition. The petition shall be filed and objections made, and the referendum shall be conducted, as provided in the general election law. The petition and the question submitted to referendum shall describe the precinct, identify the program to which the precinct is proposed to be added, and state the maximum rate at which the program shall be authorized to levy a property tax, which rate shall be the same as the existing maximum rate for the program.
    (c) If a majority of the electors of the precinct voting on the question are in favor of adding the precinct to the program, the precinct shall be part of the territory of the program.
