    CHAPTER 18 RECALL PROCESS – State of Michigan

    ELECTION OFFICIALS’ MANUAL. Michigan Bureau of Elections. Chapter 18, Updated January 2014. Chapter 18, Page 1 of 12. CHAPTER 18 RECALL …

    I find this article confusing. The signatures only trigger a recall election. If successful then an election will occur within 60 days. Our charter places the City Administrator in the position of “interim Mayor”. Since a recall is an election, both sides must file documents with the clerk or face a fine.

      If recall backers collect enough signatures there will be a mayor’s race. People who are interested in being mayor will have an opportunity to put their names on the ballot. Weaver’s name will automatically go on the ballot unless she withdraws, according to Genesee County Clerk John Gleason. I initially called the Secretary of State for clarity and was sent to the Genesee County Clerk’s office. I can check with Flint City Clerk Inez Brown to see what she has to say about it for more clarity. Thank you for sharing.
