Current Bill Summary


SJR 31 - This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by voters, would require that the question of whether to recall the county executive in office on the date of the primary election in August of 2016 must be submitted to voters in St. Louis County. The question must be submitted at the next primary or general election unless none is to be held within 30 days of the adoption of the constitutional amendment. In that case, the question must be submitted within 90 days of the adoption of the constitutional amendment at a special election.

If a majority of voters vote in favor of recall, then the office of county executive becomes vacant immediately upon certification of the results by the Board of Elections.

This Senate joint resolution states that the election on the proposed constitutional amendment must occur at the primary election to be held in August of 2016 or a special election called by the Governor.
