The final recall petitions showing the certified and rejected signatures have been scanned by the city of Coeur d'Alene.

The city has provided the following link from which the documents (in a .zip file) can be downloaded, opened and saved directly to readers' computers for viewing. It is a very large file that includes four separate pdfs.

Scanned petitions

Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers told The Press that the verified petitions were delivered by the county in boxes and counted, but not scanned on Monday when the signature count was announced. Some irregularities were discovered, but do not change the end result; there were not enough valid signatures to trigger a recall election.

During the scanning, Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers, said they found three petitions for Mayor Sandi Bloem and three for Deanna Goodlander that had been inadvertently placed in the wrong boxes after being certified.

The affected petitions are as follows:

Mayor Bloem's Petition No. 80 with nine signatures, was in Councilman Goodlander's box, and Goodlander's Petition No. 80, with eight signatures, was in Bloem's box.

Petitions No. 183, with six signatures for Bloem, and five for Goodlander, were similarly misplaced.

Both Petitions No. 305, with four signatures for Bloem and eight for Goodlander, were in Bloem's box.

 

Weathers said the signatures were added and subtracted accordingly from the proper recall target's signature tally.

The corrected totals do not change the final disposition of the petitions.

The end result is that Mayor Bloem's final count is six signatures less than originally reported by the city. The corrected total is 4,120 for Bloem.

Goodlander's final count is six signatures more than originally reported for a corrected total of 4,079.

To trigger a recall election, each incumbent's petition needed 4,311 valid signatures.
