Idaho: Boise Mayor and City Council member facing petitions

Petitioners are now targeting both Boise Mayor Lauren McLean (D) and Councilmember Lisa Sanchez for a recall after six months in office. Petitioners originally focused on the shutdowns that have occurred as part of the pandemic response. They have now included a larger list, focused on a transition team report, which they call a "radical agenda" (citing discussion of sanctuary city, abortions and sex ed).

Petitioners would need 26,108 signatures in 75 days and must top the amount of votes cast for the office. In McLean's case, they would need 23,669 and Sanchez would need 9,244 votes.

There is also an attempt to recall Governor Brad Little.
