At the bottom of the ballots substantially the following form shall appear:
FOR the adoption of the foregoing plan and project (and issuance of bonds of the district).
AGAINST the adoption of the foregoing plan and project (and the issuance of bonds of the district).
If a majority of the ballots cast on such proposition are in favor thereof, the board of directors shall declare the same adopted, and the board of directors of the district shall proceed forthwith to put such plan and project into effect, including the issuance of bonds of the district if included in the proposition submitted at the election, the levy and collection of taxes and assessments to pay such bonds and interest thereon, and the execution of all contracts proper or incident to the consummation of such plan and project.
