the original candidate was filed, or it may be presented in duplicate to any county
clerk who shall file one of the certificates in the clerk's office, immediately notify
the appropriate filing officer of the nomination and send the duplicate certificate
to the officer by the most expeditious method practicable.
(2) Upon receipt of notification that a vacancy has been filled, the filing officer

of the new candidate to each county clerk responsible for preparing ballots on which
the office will appear. The certification shall state the name and residence of the candidate nominated to
fill the vacancy, the office for which the nomination was made, the name of the minor
political party the candidate represents or the name of the chairperson of the assembly
nominating the candidate, and the name of the person for whom the candidate is substituted.
