thirteen fifteen members who must be appointed by the Governor for a term of four years as follows:

(b) The same rotation must be applied to the office of vice chairman, but the practice of rotating the office of vice chairman may be dispensed with if, by a three-fourths vote, the commission finds that the rotation is impracticable.
(2) If the office of chairman becomes vacant, then a successor must be elected for the remainder of the term.
and The new chairman must be selected from among the members representing the same county as the former chairman. The same rotation must be applied to the office of vice chairman, but the practice of rotating the office of vice chairman may be dispensed with if, by three-fourths vote, the commission finds that the rotation is impracticable."
