County Wants Signatures By June 11

Item: County drops suit, wants petitions by June 11/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Kootenai County dismissed a suit Wednesday that had asked a judge to rule on the deadline for recall petitions. So, the 5 p.m. June 19 deadline includes the time it will take Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes to certify the signatures. “I’m not satisfied with it, but I understand how they came to that,” Hayes said of the Secretary of State’s interpretation of the statutes governing the recall process. “(The conflicting statute language) is obviously an error by the legislature. They’ll fix it in January, I guess.”

Question: Are you satisfied that the 75-day deadline includes time to verify signatures?
