California: Lassen County Supervisor recall fails due to collecting signatures to early
Weird recall failure here. An attempt to recall Lassen County District 5 Supervisor Jack Hanson failed to gain enough signatures. Petitioners got 754 signatures, and needed only 568. However, three pages were circulated before the date the petition was “approved to form" and were approved on a rejected petition.
An additional 70 sections of the petition were also copied from the rejected petition. Only 143 signatures were allowed.
