  78.290.  Incumbent may be candidate. — The successor of any officer so removed shall hold office during the unexpired term of his predecessor.  Any person sought to be removed may be a candidate to succeed himself, and unless he requests otherwise in writing, the clerk shall place his name on the official ballot without nomination.  In any such removal election the candidate receiving the highest number of votes shall be declared elected.  At such election if some other person than the incumbent receives the highest number of votes, the incumbent shall thereupon be deemed removed from the office upon qualification of his successor.  In case the party who receives the highest number of votes should fail to qualify within ten days after receiving notification of election, the office shall be deemed vacant.  If the incumbent receives the highest number of votes he shall continue in office.  The same method of removal shall be cumulative and additional to the methods heretofore provided by law.
