North Carolina: Union County proposing School Board recall law

Union County opponents of a school board redistricting plan are trying to get state law changed to allow recalls of school board members.
State Rep. Craig Horn, R-Union is currently drafting a  law allowing recalls to go forward (though it wouldn't take place before December. 

Horn is modeling the legislation on a 2011 plan for Burke County’s school board. It says that if at least 15 percent of registered voters sign a recall petition, that would trigger a recall vote. Union County has about 140,000 registered voters, so a petition would need at least 21,000 signatures.
