SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Removal of officers; elected officers and officers appointed to elected office; recall election. Provides for the removal of elected officers and officers appointed to elected offices, other than those whose removal is specifically provided for in the Constitution of Virginia, through a recall election. The bill provides that an officer is subject to a recall election only after both (i) an application for recall election petition with the required number of official sponsors has been filed with and found to be legally sufficient by the general registrar and (ii) a recall election petition with the required number of voter signatures has been filed with and found to be legally sufficient by the general registrar. The bill requires more than 50 percent of the votes cast in a recall election to be affirmative for recall and removal in order for the officer to be removed and the office to be vacated.
