Is an Election committee required if only one person is running per office?

It might help if you give us your definition of an “election committee“, but RONR does not require an “election committee“ at all. If you are referring to a nominating committee, that is not required either.  What is the purpose of this “election committee“ that you referred to?

If the bylaws require a ballot election, then yes.

RONR requires an “election committee”?   Do you have a citation for that? I don’t think the term even appears in RONR.

I thought it said "election." 

No, RONR does not require any election committees.

I'm not sure what the charge of your election committee is.  RONR doesn't ever require one.  RONR suggests using a Nominating Committee to solicit candidates and report them to the assembly, but after that, the assembly itself conducts the election.  And if candidates are running unopposed (and the bylaws do not require a ballot vote) the chair may declare them elected by acclamation.
