SEC. 5.18  FORM OF RECALL BALLOT.
   Unless the officer whose removal is sought resigns 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                                        be recalled?", the name of the officer whose recall is sought being inserted in the blank, and the electors shall be permitted to vote separately "Yes" or "No" upon this 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                                         , if recalled"; but the officer whose recall is sought shall not themselves be a candidate upon such ballot. If a majority of those voting on the question of recall vote in favor of recall, the official shall be thereby removed from office, and the candidate who receives the highest number of votes for their place shall be elected thereto for the remainder of the unexpired term. If the officer sought to be recalled resigns 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 possible, as the form in use at a regular municipal election.
