Deadline: HIGH NOON!
ALL signature forms MUST be in office by NOON Monday!
Recall effort will be placed into the hands of Secretary of State
Taking it right down to the wire, Marion County Republicans supporting the Stop the Abuse - Recall Kate Brown campaign fanned out across Salem and Keizer on Sunday to grant those voters late to decide one last chance to add their signature to the hundreds of thousands petitioning for Oregon's first-ever election to recall our governor. Business was brisk at the ORP / MCR office at Center & Hawthorne as scores of people stopped to sign the petition and many more delivered filled petition sheets containing more than 15,000 signatures from counties around the state.
To ensure every signature gets counted, we will receive petition forms up until noon Monday, 31 August. Following the final processing, we will deliver all of the forms to the office of the Secretary of State in the Capitol. We need 280,050 and are expecting to gather 400,000, to make sure we get enough. The Secretary will have up to two weeks to validate the success of our effort. When the governor announces her decision to face the voters, the Secretary will set the date of the election within the following 35 days. Mid-October will not come soon enough!
