     3  follows:

     6  offices  of  governor  or  lieutenant-governor,  shall  be filled at the
     7  general election held next thereafter, unless otherwise provided by  the
     8  constitution,  or unless previously filled at a special election. When a
     9  special election has not been called to fill a vacancy, and  the  office
    10  is  to  be  filled  at the general election for more than one sequential
    11  period, then such office shall appear only once on the  ballot  at  such
