San Francisco Signatures Required for Recalls, Proposition E (November 2008)
San Francisco is a charter city/county. As such, it has the right to set its own requirements for procedures regarding the recall of its local elected officials, including the number of signatures required to force a recall election.
The State of California has signature requirements for local recall elections that apply to all general law cities in the state. Proposition E changed the number of signatures required to recall local elected officials so that its requirement conforms to the state's signature requirements for petitions.
- These final, certified, results are from the San Francisco elections office.
