How many reacalls are going on in your state? How do you feel about them?

Michigan has a bazillion and they are all republicans. None of them are for elected officals in my district with the exception of Gov. Snyder.

I didn't vote for him and i disagree with most of the decisions he's made but he won fair and square. Although i understand the reasoning behind the recall efforts I don't think his policies have been so egregious that he should be removed from office.

  • Recalls are being trotted out too often, in my opinion. Unless a grievous offense has been committed, I don't think they should be an option

  • There are several in Wisconsin. I feel that the people should have got their asses out and voted in November so the person they thought would be best would have been put in in office.

  • YES. There are several in the State of Florida... unless we pay more close attention to the issues within our county government prior to elections, we will continue to have our back against the walls when people we elect make bad decisions. we are too busy trying to live and work each day we forget to READ and EVALUATE or options. Who do we count on?

  • Good for you Michigan. Wisconsin has 6 republicans and 3 democrats (certified today). All state senators. State Reoublican Party is encouraging fake democrats to run to force a primary, spend more state money, and slow down the elections. Our governor will start having petitions circulated in November and voted out in Jan. Looking forward to that!
