Texas: El Paso recall costs may hit $300-900K

El Paso's county Election Administrator is saying that the mayoral recall could cost between $300,000 to $900,000.

But because Chacon can't use county staff and equipment to conduct a city recall election, the city will have to lease voting machines, program them and run the election itself.
