A by-election is an election occurring between general elections to fill a vacancy. When a vacancy occurs, council establishes the date for the by-election which must be a Wednesday in a village, town, city, northern municipality or rural municipality; and council may appoint someone other than the administrator to be the returning officer when the date for the by-election is established even though this may be less than 90 days before Election Day. The by-election must be held within six months of the vacancy occurring unless the vacancy occurs after January 1, during a general election year. The term of office for a member elected in a by-election begins when they are acclaimed or declared elected after Election Day. A member elected in a by-election to fill a vacancy holds office for the remainder of the unexpired term of the person who they replaced.
