Couy Griffin Recall reaches one-third of signatures needed for recall

The effort to recall District 2 Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin from his commission seat has gotten about a third of the signatures needed to trigger a recall election.

The Committee to Recall Couy Griffin announced July 28 that it had gotten 504 of the 1,574 signatures required to trigger a recall election. The committee has stated that it wants to get the needed signatures in time for the recall election to appear on the Nov. 2 General Election. 

The original date to get the recall on the Nov. 2 ballot was set for Aug. 5, but this week the date was changed to Sept. 27.

“The reason they were aiming for Aug. 5 was because that worked better with (Otero County Clerk’s Office) deadlines,” Otero County Clerk Robyn Holmes said. “Because once the signatures are turned in to my office, then me and my staff have 15 days to verify and certify the signatures and then I have five days to notify the courts, the judges and the recall committee and Couy has seven days to contest that for it to go to the (state) Supreme Court. Then the Supreme Court has another 10 days. That was the way we were looking at it was that the sooner they turned it in the better.”
