Education (EDN)

1. The designation of a site by any school district meeting shall be by written resolution containing a description thereof by metes and bounds, and such resolution must receive the assent of a majority of the qualified voters present and voting at said meeting, to be ascertained by taking and recording the ayes and noes, or by ballot.

Such resolution shall be adopted either by ballot or by taking and recording the ayes and noes.
