Recalling an elected official is an exacting process with critical requirements and deadlines, but it is not impossible. In the not too distant past, a special district official and school district officials were recalled in Humboldt County. There are several sources of information including a guide prepared by local elections officials, another prepared by the Secretary of State, and finally the ultimate source - state laws.
