Less than 60 Days?

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post, "A snap MMF Election?"

Shouldn't that read June 10 or 17th?
Dear Anonymous:

Thank you writing. Good point. Unfortunately, the e-mail we received was ambiguous on this point, "..... I never heard a for sure date but I assume it will be some time around the 10th or the next week." So do they mean the 10th or possibly the 17th of May or June? Hopefully, our source will contact us to clarify the matter.

A June voting date would make more sense because it would represent a 42-48 day campaign. However, the election by-laws are even ambiguous on this point:

"There shall be no more than sixty days (60) days between the date of the notice setting the date of the election and Election Day. In order to calsulate complinace with this provision, the first day counted shall be the day after the date fo the notice setting the date of the election and the last day counted shall be Election Day."

But can can it be less than 60 days and if so by how much? Hopefully, not otherwise a shorter time period could be used by incumbents to catch candidates off guard.
