If, at any primary election held as above provided, there be any office or offices for which no candidate was elected, then as to such office or offices said election shall be considered to be a primary election for nomination of candidates for such office or offices, and the second or general municipal election shall be held to vote for candidates to fill such office or offices. Candidates to be placed on the ballot at such second or general municipal elections shall be those not elected at such first elections, and shall be equal in number to twice the number to be elected to any given office, or less than that number if there be less than that number named on the primary election ballot, and persons who receive the highest number of votes for the respective offices at such first election shall be the only candidates at such second election; provided that, if there be any person, who under the provisions of this chapter, would have been entitled to become a candidate for any office, except for the fact that some other candidate received an equal number of votes therefor, then all such persons receiving said equal number of votes shall likewise become candidates for such office.
