Judy Tillman recall, Heflin, Louisiana (2013)
In August 2013 no one had filed for candidacy for the mayoral position left vacant after Tillman's recall by the qualification deadline, leaving the village's executive position unoccupied for the time being.
Path to the ballot
A effort began in 2012 to recall Tillman. An election was scheduled for August 16 that year, but was later canceled when a judge struck 6 of the 69 signatures on the petition. That put the signature county below the 40 percent of the 165 registered voters required for the election, thereby invalidating it.
The effort was begun a second time. That time they needed 62 signatures, or 40 percent the 156 registered voters. The petitioners collect 78 signatures.Cite error: Closing

Tillman described the recall effort to reporters as "unfounded" and "vindictive."
