Group wanting to recall Snyder can collect signatures
Tue, 10 Apr 2012 17:27:24 GMT —
The group that is fronting a recall effort against Gov. Rick Snyder can begin collecting voter signatures in an effort to make the ballot.
A three-person election panel in Washtenaw County voted 2-1
Monday that a petition sponsored
by a group called Michigan Rising
has clear language.
Supporters of recalling the Republican governor
next would have to collect roughly 807,000 valid
signatures to put
the measure on a ballot.
An effort to recall Snyder fizzled last year, falling well short
of the required signatures.
The Snyder administration has said it believes citizens will be
more focused on recent economic
and state budget improvements in
Michigan than an effort to recall the governor.
No Michigan governor has ever been recalled from office.
