The election of a new member by the members of a corporation (collegium) to supply a vacant place. Among corporations which long filled their vacancies in this way may be mentioned the college of pontifices and augurs. The election was preceded by the nomination of a proper candidate by one of the members, and followed by his inauguration. See Collegium.
