However, the ordinance imposing the tax shall be adopted by the parish governing authority only after the question of the imposition of the tax has been submitted to the qualified electors of Richland Parish at an election conducted in accordance with the election laws of the state, and a majority of those voting on the proposition have voted in favor of the imposition of the tax.
