State legislators can be recalled in 18 states. As of March 2015, 72 recalls have been filed, with 35 making it to the ballot. Of those, 19 have been successful. The first successful recall occurred in California in 1913.

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.

Recall of Wisconsin State Senators in 2011

In 2011, residents of Wisconsin took effort to recall as many as 16 sitting state senators. Sufficient signatures were ratified for nine senators, and all nine faced recall during August 2011. Two sitting Republican senators -- Dan Kapanke and Randy Hopper -- were recalled. As a result of the Wisconsin Senators, the nation figures climbed to 29 total state legislative recalls.

November 8, 2011

Voters removed two state legislators on November 8, 2011.

Recall of Wisconsin State Senators in 2012

In 2012, residents of Wisconsin took effort to recall four state Senators. The four, all of whom were Republican, faced recall on June 5. Ultimately, one of the incumbents, Van Wanggaard was successfully recalled following a recount. This gave Democrats control of the Senate.
