Ohio: Kent to vote on changes in recall law

Kent voters will be asked to change their recall law with a vote on Issue 16 -- the changes include upping 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. The City Council voted in favor of the change 8-1.
