Maybe since it is a local issue I feel pretty feverently on this, but I wanted to see what others felt as well. <br />

I actually held off after originally reading this. I am torn.

On one hand I can see the argument that only those of a party should be voting to recall. My reasoning is that you could have several situations where a population shift could impact this. For example, redistricting could cause a major party shift in an area and for purely political purposes those people could try and force a recall.

On the flip side, a politician represents all who are in his district. So saying that only those of a party affiliation can request a recall is flawed.

If I was going to modify recall laws I would say that only those who voted in the original election could vote in the recall election.
