Nevada: Judge rejects request for time extension for Gubernatorial recall effort

An attempt to get an extension for the recall effort against Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) has been rejected by a federal district judge. asking for an extension to the 90 day signature collection period due to the stay at home orders. The recall effort has been over the kitchen sink of complaints, including gun control, private well limits, DMV policy and an (apparently false) claim that he supports an income tax. The plan was announced last June.

Petitioners would need 243,995 signatures in 90 days. They apparently had 15,897 by the 45 day mark.

Petitioners would have to post a bond of pay for signature verification. Changes to the law also split the gathering period in two, and petitioners would have to hand in all signatures gathered in the first half (45 days) to be turned in soon after to be declared valid.
