John Cagnalatti’s recall was filed Aug. 9th.

Aaron Lawler’s recall was filed Aug. 3rd.

Dempsey Lambert’s recall was filed July 26th.  

Corey Orgeron’s was filed July 21st.

Teri Casso was the first recall officially filed on July 19th.

Each recall’s amount of time given to get the required number of signatures is different because it’s based on the number of registered voters living in each district. The same goes for the required number of signatures. In some cases it is 180 days with 2/3 the registered voters for signatures, but that varies for each recall and each district.

Unfiltered with Kiran did reach out to all six members, but only Aaron Lawler (Raw Interview with Lawler) and Teri Casso (Raw Interview with Casso) returned calls or emails.
