The circuit judge shall cause a statement of the result of the election to be
entered of record in the circuit court, a certified copy of which statement
shall be filed by the board of the district in the records of the district, and
recorded in the offices of the county clerk and recorder of each county in
which the district lies.
If a majority of the votes cast upon that question at such election
in the territory proposed to be annexed shall be for annexation, or if
no votes whatever are cast for or against the question at such election
in the territory proposed to be annexed, or if no election is held in
such territory because there are no legal voters residing therein, and,
also, if a majority of the votes cast upon the question in the annexing
district shall be for annexation, then the adjoining territory shall
thenceforth be a part of such district.
Upon annexation, whether by petition or referendum, all the taxable
property in the territory or in the district annexed shall be subject to
all of the tax rates of the annexing district.
