Unless the officer whose removal is sought shall have resigned within ten days after the receipt by the council of the completed recall petition, the form of the ballot at such election shall be as near as may be: “Shall A be recalled?”, the name of the officer whose recall is sought being inserted in place of A, and the electors shall be permitted to vote separately “Yes” or “No” upon the question. The ballot shall also contain the names of the candidates to be voted upon to fill the vacancy, in case the recall is successful, under the caption: “Candidates to fill the place of A, if recalled.” But the officer whose recall is sought shall not himself/herself be a candidate upon such ballot. In case a majority of those voting for and against the recall of any official shall vote in favor of recalling such official, he/she shall be thereby removed from office, and in that event the candidate who receives the highest number of votes for his/her place shall be elected thereto for the remainder of the unexpired term. If the officer sought to be recalled shall have resigned within ten days after the receipt by the council of the completed recall petition, the form of ballot at the election shall be the same, as nearly as may be, as the form in use at a regular municipal election.
