Governor DavisÂ´ allies made a last-ditch effort Monday to block certification of signatures of supporters of his recall. Taxpayers Against the Governorâ€™s Recall is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop the secretary of state from certifying DavisÂ´ recall until a hearing on the groupâ€™s allegations of illegal signature-gathering.
Meanwhile, counting recall petition signatures was finished last week in Tuolumne County. Results have been forwarded to Secretary of Stateâ€™s office.
Tuolumne County Elections office received 3,645 recall petitions signatures. County personnel counted and did a random sampling of those signatures. An elections office spokeswoman says they actually checked nearly 1,500 signatures. Of those, 85 percent were found to be valid.
