An estimated 26 recalls took place on November 8, 2011. There were two state legislators facing a recall.

For all other recalls, click here.


Russell Pearce, Arizona

Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce (R) was recalled from office. In Arizona, recall law stipulates that voters will go to the polls and either vote to keep Pearce in office or to elect a new State Senator. The opponent who defeated Pearce was Jerry Lewis (R).

The group that filed the recall petitions alleged that Pearce failed to "focus on issues and concerns that affect all Arizonans."In essence, the primary issue of the campaign has been immigration reform.

Polls were open from 6am-7pm local time.

Paul Scott, Michigan

In Michigan, legislators facing recall do not face an opponent in the recall itself. Voters on November 8 who live in District 51 saw a question on their ballot that read:

Shall Paul Scott be recalled from the office of Michigan State Representative, District 51?

A "Yes" vote would remove Scott from office. A "No" vote would represent a choice to keep Scott in office. If Scott is recalled, then his position will be filled by a special election in 2012.

Recall language cites Scott's support of education cuts as well as taxes on retirement income as reasons for the effort

Polls were open from 7am-8pm local time. Scott was removed from office.
