When the vote is canvassed by the board of directors and the result is entered on the minutes of the board, if a majority of the votes cast is found to be " for reducing bonds - -yes" , the board may issue or sell only the amount of bonds specified in the notice of the special election. If a majority of the votes is " for reducing bonds - -no, " the authority to issue bonds shall remain the same as before the special election was held.
