Virginia: Petitioners claim enough signatures for Albemarle County Supervisor recall
The recall/trial of Albemarle County Supervisor Chris Dumler may move to the next stage, as petitioners claim they have at least 372 signatures (which equals the 10% of turnout needed). They are waiting to double the amount before handing it in.
Since this is Virginia, the petition will result in a trial, rather than an election. 10-percent of voters who cast ballots in the last election for Dumler's seat - totaling 372 needed signatures.
There is some question whether Dumler can face a recall for his plea on a misdemeanor sexual battery charge.
