State legislative recall history

1913-2008

Between 1913 and 2008, there were 21 state legislative recall elections and all of them took place in just five states: California, Idaho, Michigan, Oregon and Wisconsin.

  • 13 of the recall elections were directed at state senators, with 8 successfully recalled.
  • 8 of the recall elections were directed at state representatives, with 5 successfully recalled.

Of the 20 state legislative recall elections, 13 out of 20 resulted in the state legislator being recalled.
