SECTION 2 Recall Election.
Upon written petition of at least thirty (30) percent of the eligible voters of the Yurok Tribe, presented to and verified by the Election Board (or Yurok Tribal Council until an Election Board is established), a special Tribal Voting Membership election shall be called to consider the recall of the elected official named in the petition. In the case of a Yurok Tribal Council Member serving from a district, the petition requirement shall be at least thirty (30) percent of the eligible voters from the district represented by a Yurok Tribal Council member. A special district membership election shall be called by the Yurok Tribe to consider the recall of the elected official named in the petition. Voting shall be by secret ballot. Absentee ballots shall be available upon written request by eligible voters and mailed in a timely manner to such voters. The election shall be held within sixty (60) days from the date the petition is verified; provided, that any petition submitted within four (4) months of the next annual election shall be placed on the ballot of the annual election. The position occupied by the official shall be declared vacant if at least two-thirds (2/3) of those voting (all Yurok voters in the case of the Tribal Chairperson or Vice-Chairperson, or all district voters in the case of Tribal Council Members) support the recall. Vacant positions shall be filled in accordance with Article III, Section 10.
