Referendum regulations require that 50% plus 1 of the total eligible voters must cast ballots to pass on a first vote (469 Total, 50% plus 1=235).  As only 168 electors cast ballots, this proposal must be submitted to the membership for a second vote.

A simple majority is required on the second vote to either support or reject the proposals.
