Petition For Sheriff Recall Vote In Walsh County Approved

The petition for a recall vote for Sheriff Lauren Wild in Walsh County was approved Thursday.

The petition for a recall vote for Sheriff Lauren Wild in Walsh County was approved by the Secretary of State Thursday.

Those petitioning for a recall vote now have to receive 1,236 signatures and submit the petition to the Walsh County Auditor's Office by November 18th, 2011. All qualified voters in Walsh County are allowed to sign the petition.

The petition started when Sheriff Lauren Wild fired former Deputy Ron Nord a day after the election when Nord ran against Wild for the Sheriff seat.

Wild said he fired Nord because of the lies he spread about him during the election, and he could no longer be trusted.
