Florida: Haines City recall petitions -- interesting petition requirements
Attempt to recall two city commissioners in Haines City, Florida. Issue is their approval of a severance package for former city manager. An interesting two round signature process. In the first round, the petitioners need 10% of registered voters. If that is approved, they then need to collect 15% of vote signatures (no word on whether they have to be different signatures). The first round is somewhere close to 900 signatures.
