An effort to recall Mayor Randy Darrow in Tulelake, California from his position was launched in early 2014. Darrow was retained.
| Recall Mayor Randy Darrow|
Under state election law, "if one-half or more of the votes at a recall election are 'no,' the officer sought to be recalled shall continue in office." Because exactly one-half of the votes cast in the recall were 'no' votes, Darrow retained his office.
Recall proponent arguments
The recall petition filed against Darrow charged him with "failure to follow the Brown Act, which provides for public meetings; failure to protect city residents from conflict of interest for legal representation; [and] failure to follow city procedures for hiring and dismissal of city employees."
