Providing the references for HHH's comment (emphasis added):

"If the bylaws require the election of officers to be by ballot and there is only one nominee for an office, the ballot must nevertheless be taken for that office unless the bylaws provide for an exception in such a case." (page 441, lines 25-28).

"If only one person is nominated and the bylaws do not require that a ballot vote be taken, the chair, after ensuring that, in fact, no members present wish to make further nominations, simply declares that the nominee is elected, thus effecting the election by unanimous consent or “acclamation.”" (Page 443, lines 7-12)

So check if your bylaws require a ballot vote and, if they do, whether there is an exception in the case when there's only one nominee.
