COEUR D’ALENE--The movement to oust Coeur d'Alene's mayor and several council members could be almost over.
A group called "Recall CDA" turned in more than 21,000 signatures Monday morning demanding a recall vote.
Recall leaders were at City Hall right at 9 a.m. to deliver the petitions. While they seem to have enough signatures, there’s a chance many of them won’t count.
Looking at the early numbers all four could be on the recall ballot. Each person got at least 5,300 signatures. That's more than the 4,311 required to get each person on it.
The big question is how many of the signatures will count. City leaders say already at least five of them won’t. There are several reasons; like a person's name, address, or the date they signed isn't right.
Recall CDA leaders say they’re overwhelmed and thankful for the signers. Meanwhile leaders from the opposition group called Stop the Recall are also checking each name.
They say they’re also finding signatures that won’t count for the same reasons.
The county will start counting each signature Tuesday to make sure each one checks out. They will announce if there are enough legitimate signatures on June 19th.
If there's enough for a recall election the city clerk will pick the date. The earliest would be in August.
