Rhode Island: Tiverton Council President, Vice President facing petitions

Tiverton Council President Robert Coulter and Vice President Justin Katz are facing recalls over complaints about an executive session at meetings. The lead petitioner, William McLaughlin, lost as a council candidate in November. Petitioner has already handed in signatures, but is adding more. Petitioner needs 587 for Katz and 505 for Coulter.

The town has an absentee veto provision. The turnout has to exceed the amount of votes each got in the last election for the recall to count (though unlike Idaho, the amount voting yes does not have to top the previous election's numbers).
