Kootenai County has posted reports showing accepted and rejected signers of recall petitions for three Coeur d’Alene City Council members and for the mayor on its website.
The reports show accepted signers first, then rejected signers. Both groups are sorted by precinct and then in alphabetical order by last name.
"Searchers can save lots of time by using the ‘Find’ box in the upper right corner of the task bar,” said County Clerk Cliff Hayes, in a prepared statement. “Type last name first for the fastest results." If there is no “Find” box already showing on the toolbar, click Edit, then Find and one will appear.
The rejected listings note whether the rejection was for an invalid address or an invalid signature. A “not valid” rejection means signers who signed a petition on a date earlier than their voter registration information was accepted.
Petition signers who reside outside the Coeur d’Alene city limits do not appear on either the accepted or the rejected reports. They were not part of the database against which signatures were checked because they were never eligible to sign petitions for the recall of Coeur d’Alene city leaders.
If people have questions about the information contained in these reports, they should contact the elections office at 446-1030.
