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.[2][3]

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."[1]
