Virginia: Isle of Wright School board member petition misses by 5-10 signatures, confusion reigns
The petitions against Isle of Wight County School Board member Herb De Groft have been found to miss the 206 signatures needed by 5-10 signatures. However, the city has no idea what to do next. The law is completely unclear -- can the petitioners go out and get the signatures, do they have to start from the beginning or is this the end. We'll see, though certainly not the first time we've seen this type of failure with recall laws.
