"If either Thorne or Cook-Kallio is elected mayor, the City Council would have a third vacant seat which would be filled in a special election, likely to be held next March. Both candidates have two years remaining on their current term of office."

Since either Thorne or Cook will obviously be mayor , what does it take to make the next in line council candidate take the vacated seat without a special election? Sure would save some money.
