South Carolina ballot news

South Carolina may introduce statewide recall election


COLUMBIA, South Carolina: Senator Mike Rose is backing an effort to have the state of South Carolina allow for citizens to recall government officials at any and all levels. With the potential impeachment of Governor Mark Sanford, Rose has picked the prime time to bring the issue to the attention of the state. Rose is also backing an idea that would allow for initiative and referendum on the state level. Currently, South Carolina does not allow this process.

Rose has justified his ideas and proposals by stating the voters need to have the same power as the legislature when removing public officials from office. The issue will rear its head in the next South Carolina Legislative Session.[1]
