Elected official recall bill one step closer to becoming reality

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – People in Topsail Beach are one step closer to being able to recall their elected officials.

The State House Government Committee approved a bill Thursday introduced by Representative Carolyn Justice. 

It would give residents the power to get rid of a politician they don't believe is doing the job. The recall would need a petition of 30 percent of voters.

A proposed recall election would not be allowed three months after a regular election, or six months before one.
