All elective officers provided for by this Charter shall be nominated by petition. The name of any elector of the city shall be printed on the ballot as a candidate for an office whenever a petition signed by at least twenty-five (25) eligible voters of the city has been filed with the city clerk on the elector's behalf during the candidate filing period as determined by law. The city clerk shall immediately check this petition and if found to be insufficient it shall be returned to the circulator within two business days of receipt. No elector shall sign petitions for more candidates for any office than the number of persons to be chosen for that office at the election; should that occur, the signature shall be void as to the petition or petitions last filed.
