Michigan: Legal questions surround Troy mayoral replacement race -- state law says must be held in February, City claims November

After its election day recall of Mayor Janice Daniels, Troy City Council members selected Dane Slater as its mayor. However, there is a discrepancy between city and state law. The City Charter says that the next election would be held in November 2013. State law demands it be held at the next regular election date -- February 26.

Further complicating matters is this:
If the city were to hold the special election in February, all applications would have to be in by 4 p.m. Nov. 26, Bluhm said, noting that's less than a week away.
