To force a recall election for a county commissioner, a committee of three registered voters within the commissioner’s district must apply to the county clerk.
The county attorney then verifies that the grounds for recall — in this case, failure to perform duties as prescribed by law — are legally sufficient.
The committee and other listed sponsors then have 90 days to collect signatures from 588 voters in the district — 40 percent of the votes cast in the last election.
Once those signatures are verified by the county clerk, an election is scheduled within 60 to 90 days.
In November 2014, Lori Lalouette defeated Craig Dodd by just three votes.
