RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- There are several community efforts to recall the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees. But these efforts are actually more complicated than you may think.
The first step is simple. To begin a recall process, you only need to file an Intent To Recall. You do not need to give a reason; just fill out where, who and what.
The challenge lies in getting the right signatures leading to this point. To recall an elected official, 25-percent of voters from a certain official's election need to sign a petition.
However, not all board members were elected in the same year, and all board members represent different districts. Therefore, the 25-percent number is different for each board member.
"We go through a process of verifying signatures to make sure that they meet the minimum number of signatures they need to initiate the recall," said Voter Registrar Deanna Spikula. "We transmit that information to the secretary of state's office and they will, on a certain amount of time, they will go forward and tell us, 'Yes, go ahead and hold the recall election,' and then at that point, we have to hold a special election within 30 days."
In Monday's episode of Nevada Newsmakers, Howard Rosenberg said he will not resign from the school board, and he does not think he will be recalled.
