Oklahoma: Enid Commissioner recall likely makes the ballot; Date to be set

The recall effort against Enid Commissioner Ben Ezzell appears likely headed to the ballot, as petitioners handed in over 200 signatures, validated at least 87. They needed 69. The issue was Ezzell's support for the city to enforce the state's COVID-19 alert system and his criticism of the police chief for a failure to enforce a mask mandate proposal designed to combat the pandemic.

The date of the recall is still open. It will be either on Election Day in November or on the city's ward elections in February. Ezzell's term expires in May, so the race would also include a race to succeed Ezzell for the next term.
