An effort to recall four members of the Galesburg-Augusta School Board of Education in Kalamazoo County, Michigan was launched in June 2012. The recall effort was abandoned in July 2012.

Reasons for recall
Path to the ballot
The County Elections Commission reviewed the petition language on July 3. The language was ruled vague and confusing. In addition, the County Elections Commission ruled that two of the recall targets could not be recalled because they are in the final 6 months of their terms. Recall organizers submitted amended petitions for Rutherford and Noteboom-Wood, but that language was rejected for being unclear at a hearing on July 31.
