Any proposal to limit the number of terms a member of the governing body of the district may serve on the governing body of the district shall apply prospectively and shall not become operative unless it is submitted to the electors of the district at a regularly scheduled election and a majority of the votes cast on the question favor the adoption of the proposal.
