The mayoral recall movement in Fall River has had their petition certification fail in their most recent attempt.
According to the Fall River City Clerk and Elections Office, the petition could not be certified for the new attempt. It was at least their 3rd effort. The petition was rejected due to the incorrect address of some of the 10 citizens.
The petition was rejected previously due to proper language that wasn’t included.
If the petition receives certification, the recall group will have 20 days to obtain signatures from five percent of the city’s registered voters.
A recall election will occur if the correct amount of signatures are received and certified and the Mayor does not resign from office in 5 days from the certification.
