THE office of Chancellor is biennial, or tenable for such a length of time beyond two years as the tacit consent of the University may choose to allow. The election of a Chancellor must be within fourteen days after the vacancy-and is, more burgensium. At the time of election, the Vice-Chancellor, the two Proctors, and the junior D.D. present, stand in scrutiny, (in failure of the latter, the junior LL.D., and in the absence of such, the junior M.D.) and first write their votes. All members of the Senate then bring their votes written in the same form, and the Senior Proctor pronounces the election.

JAMES I., by his Charter in the first year of his reign, granted power to the Chancellors, Masters, and Scholars of the two Universities, to elect and return two persons in each, to represent them in Parliament. Whenever there is a vacancy in the representation, the Sheriff sends the precept to the Vice-Chancellor; and the election, of which the Vice-Chancellor gives four days' notice at least, s to be within eight days from the receipt of it. At the time of election, the two Proctors, and the junior D.D. present, stand in scrutiny with the Vice-Chancellor, who is the returning officer. The members of the Senate then give their votes in writing, and a najority of such determines the election.
