If a vacancy occurs the remaining Directors must appoint a qualified person from the division in which the vacancy occurs within 60 days of the vacancy. The person appointed to fill the vacancy will hold office until the next general district election, and until the person who is elected at that election to fill the remainder of the unexpired term has been qualified.
As an alternative to making an appointment, the remaining Directors may within 60 days of the vacancy call an election to fill the vacancy. If the Board neither fills the vacancy nor calls an election, the Board of Supervisors may fill the vacancy within 90 days of the date of the vacancy, or may order the District to call an election. If the Board of Supervisors fails to act, the District must call an election.
