Breaking! Rejection Rate Now 20%

This morning Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes announced further progress on signature verifications for the Coeur d’Alene Recall petitions.  “We’ve completed verification and checking on approximately 40% of the petitions.  The cumulative reject rate is now running about 20% for the three Council members and for the Mayor,” Hayes said. At the 20% disqualification rate, the targeted elected officials would have the following number of valid signatures against them — and would survive the recall election (4311 needed for recall election):

  • Mayor Sandi Bloem (with 5384 signatures on petitions): 4307
  • Councilman Mike Kennedy (with 5327): 4261
  • Councilwoman Deanna Goodlander (with 5314): 4251
  • Councilman Woody McEvers (with 5267): 4214
