Recall Elections


Quyen Tu, Natalie Roetzel Ossenfort, Tim Mooney


On this episode, we’re talking about recall elections. A recall is a procedure that allows citizens to remove and replace a public official before the official’s term of office ends. Historically, recalls have been used most frequently at the local level and this year, and this year we’re seeing a very prominent effort in California. Can nonprofits advocate in a recall election?
