“When either House has too few Members able to attend to reach quorum, the executives of affected States will issue writs of election to fill those vacancies. But when less than three months remain in the term or when the President declares a state of emergency, a State's legislature may empower its executive to make temporary appointments before issuing writs of election; when that office is vacant, that legislature will have power to make temporary appointments before issuing writs of election; when a State's legislature also falls below possible quorum, its executive will have power to make temporary appointments to Congress before issuing writs of election, but if that office is also vacant a write-in election will take place. When writs do not issue promptly, a State may petition its legislature for an election.”
