Ohio: Kent City Council vote for charter changes to increase signature amount for recalls
The City Council voted 8-1 to increase the signature amount for recalls to 25% of turnout in the last presidential election and require a stated cause of action. Kent was the site of a 2009 recall against five councilmembers (all survived). Apparently, there are some debates on an Ohio Supreme Court decision which prevents signature requirements from being tied to registered voters.
