Massachusetts: Hawley looking at recall law
Hawley is looking into adopting a recall law (it seems like this is being pushed by non-elected officials). Under the rules, petitioners would need 20% of registered voters to sign (don't see a time frame in the story). It also looks like a one day/two step process (a recall, followed by a replacement vote on the same ballot). The recall law does allow a second recall in one term -- there just has to be 180 day wait. The official cannot return to office for three years.
