If you signed a recall petition but changed your mind, you can withdraw your signature!
How to remove your signature from recall petitions:
The petitions concern whether to recall two duly elected Santa Cruz Council members – Drew Glover and Chris Krohn. Anyone who signed a recall petition has the legal right to withdraw his or her petition signature.
IMPORTANT: Signature withdrawal forms must be in the hands of the City Elections Official by no later than close of business (5:00 pm) the day BEFORE recall petitions are submitted. Postmarks do not count.
The final deadline for the recall petitions is Tuesday, October 22. We recommend filing your withdrawal no later than Friday, October 18. The latest possible date would be Monday, October 21, but if the recall petitions are submitted on that date, it will be too late to withdraw your signature.
