“The general rule is, where a condition precedent is mandatory for doing an act, the failure to fulfill that pre-condition will obviously render of non effect the doing of any act subsequent without first fulfilling the pre-condition. The mandatory nature of the foregoing requirement is made even more compelling in election matters which are (sui generes) of a special nature and where the Laws regulating same are so stringent and refusing any room for shifting position.”
