The referendum shall be held at the time of the 2004 November general election. The question to be placed on the ballot shall be as follows:

"Shall the chairman of the county board of supervisors, to be known as the county chairman, be elected by the voters of the county at large?

The election shall be held and the results certified as provided in §§ 24.2-682 and 24.2-684

B. Following certification of the election results by the electoral board, the court shall enter an order proclaiming the results of such election and a duly certified copy of such order shall be transmitted to the board of supervisors of the County and the State Board of Elections. If a majority of the voters voting in the referendum vote in favor of the election of a chairman at large, the first election for a chairman shall be held at the November 2005 general election, and the candidate elected shall serve for a term of four years.

C. The county chairman shall be the chairman of the county board of supervisors and preside at the meetings thereof.
