Provides that if there is only one nominee for election to a conservancy district (district) board of directors (board) to represent an area of the district, the nominee is considered elected. Provides that if there is only one nominee for election to the board for each area for which a director is to be elected, the election is not required to be held and each of the board members is considered to have been elected as if the election had been held. Authorizes the board to enter into leases of land to providers of commercial mobile services that allow for the construction, use, and maintenance of a tower that is used for telecommunications purposes. For districts located in certain counties, if in the opinion of the secretary of the district a freehold has been divided into multiple freeholds to increase the number of voters, allows the secretary to exclude the freeholders of the multiple freeholds from the list of freeholders eligible to vote. Provides that the determination of the secretary may be challenged by petitioning the circuit court that created the district. For other districts, provides that only one vote may be cast per freehold in an election for members of the board.
