A Paris Recall Ordinance Referendum appeared on the November 3, 2009 ballot in Oxford County for voters in the City of Paris.

The referendum called for any elected town official, with the exception of School Administrative District 17 officials, to be subject to recall. However, a petition with a minimum of 10% of voters in the last gubernatorial election must be filed. The petition must name the official to be recalled and the reason voters want to remove the official.

Interim Town Manger Michael Thorne said that before the measure can be placed on the November ballot a public hearing must be held regarding the proposed ordinance. Referendum supporters have already submitted a total of 354 valid signatures. They were certified by the town clerk on July 24, 2009.[1]
