Petition signing to Recall Rick Snyder, Tom Casperson to be held Sept. 24 in Houghton

HOUGHTON -- The local organizers for the Committee to Recall Rick Snyder will be having a signature collection effort to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and State Senator Tom Casperson from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 24, at the City of Houghton Waterfront Park (Chutes and Ladders park) during the Upper Peninsula Building Trades Rally/Picnic.*

The recall Rick Snyder petition drive has been extended past the original 90-day window the committee had anticipated, so the signatures from May and most of June are now invalid. Anyone who knows he or she signed the petition to recall Rick Snyder prior to June 25, 2011, can now re-sign at this event on Saturday.

Any Michigan registered voter can sign the petition. It is not necessary to be a resident of Houghton County.

The local signature collection efforts that took place in June are as follows:

The community room at the Keweenaw Co-op -- June 4, 2011
Downtown Houghton during the Houghton Arts and Music Festival -- June 11, 2011
Bridgeview Park during Bridgefest -- June 18, 2011.
