Alaska Supreme Court Allows Recall Dunleavy to Begin Gathering Signatures
The Alaska Supreme Court issued an order allowing the campaign to recall Gov. Mike Dunleavy to begin collecting signatures.
The decision reverses a lower court ruling pausing signature gathering and putting the case on an extremely speedy schedule by the standards of the court.
Oral arguments over the legality of the recall will be held on March 25.
The Division of Elections will begin printing petition booklets for Recall Dunleavy to collect the required 71, 252 signatures.
If the Supreme Court rules the recall campaign legal, any election would take place 60 to 90 days after the Division of Elections confirms enough signatures have been gathered.
