MARYLAND MANUAL 237

The House of Delegates has sole power of impeachment of any
officer of the State. A majority of the whole number of members of
the House must approve any bill of impeachment. The Senate tries
all impeachment cases, and two-thirds of the total number of Senators
must concur in a verdict of guilty (III, 26).

Both Houses elect the State Treasurer by a joint ballot. The Gen-
eral Assembly also elects the Governor if the popular election has
resulted in a tie or the winning candidate is ineligible; and, should
the office become vacant while the General Assembly is in session,
then it shall elect a successor; otherwise, the President of the Senate
succeeds to the office until the next regular session.
