Nevada: Recheck of State Senate recall petitions still fails to hit requirement

Following a recheck of signatures, petitioners were still found to have missed the numbers needed to get the recalls of Senators Joyce Woodhouse and Nicole Cannizzaro on the ballot. The Woodhouse recall missed by 21, and Cannizzaro by about 500. Prior to the recheck, the signature total discrepancy was 196 for Woodhouse.

An appellate court is still expected to decide whether signatures can be removed by the signer after the fact. If the court upholds the lower court ruling that they can be, then the petitions will have missed by a lot more.
