Arkansas: 2 mayors ousted, four survive on election day recall
Still looking for the details on each of these Arkansas recalls, but if this piece is correct, two of the six recalls succeeded in kicking out the official. Alexander mayor Paul Mitchell and Kingsland mayor Tim McClellan were removed, and the mayors survived in Bauxite, Cotton Plant, and Redfield. Additionally, we have seen that Wilmot's mayor survived.
Update: Some numbers have come in:
Alexander Mayor Paul Mitchell lost 71-29% (453-184).
Bauxite Mayor Johnny McMahan survived 46-54% (127-148)
