Fewer Recalls in 2013

Joshua Spivak notes a steep drop off in elected officials who were recalled by voters this year.

"In 2011, we had 151. In 2012, we had 168, with 509 attempts. In 2013, we have 107, with 478 attempts. Of those 107 recalls, 73 were ousted; 51 officials lost a race, and another 22 resigned -- a 68% removal rate. As in the past, these number probably understate the amount of recalls that took place."
