If option B is adopted at an election at which a clerk or treasurer, or a clerk-treasurer under option D, is elected, the candidate elected to that office shall not take office and that candidate's election shall be null. Otherwise, when option B is adopted in a town, the incumbent clerk or treasurer, or clerk-treasurer, shall continue to serve until the expiration of their terms or until an earlier vacancy.
When option B is abandoned, the offices of clerk or treasurer, or the office of clerk-treasurer under option D, shall be filled conditionally at that election. The ballot shall indicate that the successful candidate shall take office only if the option is abandoned at the election.
