Oklahoma: Petitioners can claim they have signatures for Norman City Council recall

Petitioners claim that they have the signatures to get three recalls on the ballot against Norman Mayor Breea Clark and City Council members Kate Bierman, Alison Petrone and Stephen Holman. Petitioners have asked for a 10 day extension over election interference.

City Councilwoman Sereta Wilson resigned in the face of the recall. 

The recall is over a vote to cut the police department's proposed budget by $865,000 (it appears not to be an actual cut -- the police wanted a big increase and got only a smaller one). There are also complaints about the council's push to require masks to stave off the coronavirus pandemic.

Petitioners would need 25% of registered voters in 30 days. The recall of Clark would require over 18,000 signatures.
