ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico: During a short legislative session from January 19 to January 18, 2010, New Mexico legislators considered a bill that would allow citizens to recall elected officials[1].

House Joint Resolution 11 (timed out) would have allowed New Mexicans to recall members of Congress, statewide constitutional officers, and members of the New Mexico State Legislature. The signature requirements would have allowed a recall with signatures coming from twenty-five percent of voters who voted in the last election for the office in question[2].

The Resolution failed to advance out of committee and did not see a up or down vote in either House of the Legislature[3].
