Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes announced further progress on signature verifications for the Coeur d’Alene recall petitions.
“With more petitions verified and checked, most signatures are valid. However, the rejection rate has increased," Hayes said in a press release.
He said about 30 percent of the signatures have been verified and checked.
Approximate signature rejection percentages for all council members are now 18 percent; the signature acceptance rate has fallen to 82 percent.
