Clatsop County recall ballots go out this week
CLATSOP COUNTY, Oregon: On Friday, Clatsop County officials sent out ballots for the October 27, 2009 recall election.

The recall efforts developed after the three commissioners voted in favor of a liquefied natural gas development. However, because the recall election is not countywide, the county has a total of 5 drop-off sites: Clatsop County Clerk's Office, 24-hour Drive-up Drop Box on Exchange Street, Cannon Beach City Hall, Seaside City Hall and Warrenton City Hall.
Hazen serves as the county chair and represents District 1, Samuelson reprepsents District 5 and Roberts represents District 2.
