KALAMAZOO (WZKO) -- A brand new Michigan law on how to conduct recall elections could be used for the first time in Kalamazoo County this fall.
Hundreds of signatures have been submitted to the Kalamazoo County Clerk’s office seeking the recall of Alamo Supervisor Lou Conti and trustee Dawn Potter- Williams.
If The recall petitions are deemed valid, an election would be held in November and under new state rules, Clerk Tim Snow says opposition candidates would also appear on the ballot.
He says it streamlines the process. Instead of two elections, they can do it with one.
Snow says he has already started validating signatures.
The backers of the recall need 380 valid signatures to force a November vote.
