Hi,
We looked into this and based on this definition of "election by acclamation," it looks like a group can't reopen elections in this situation.

The most frequent type of acclamation is a voice vote, in which the voting group is asked who favors and who opposes the proposed candidate. In the event of a lack of opposition, the candidate is considered elected. In parliamentary procedure, acclamation is a form of unanimous consent.
