If at any primary election there shall be any office or offices for which no candidates are elected as provided in section 8-1 of this chapter, as to such office or offices, said election shall be considered to be the primary election for the purpose of nominating candidates for such office or offices, and a general election shall then be held only to fill such office or offices. Candidates to be placed on the ballot at the general election shall be only those not declared elected at the primary election, and at such election there shall be not more than two (2) candidates for each office to be filled. Only those candidates sufficient in number receiving the highest number of votes at the primary election and who were not declared elected shall be eligible to be placed on the general election ballot. However, if there is any candidate who, under the provisions of this section, would have been entitled to become a candidate at the general election for any office, except for the fact that some other candidate received an equal number of votes for such office, all such eligible candidates who received an equal number of votes for such office shall likewise be candidates for such office. (Ord. 83 § 3, 1-22-1962; Ord. 96-428, 11-12-1996)
