There was no single reason why San Bernardino County’s elections office rejected almost two-thirds of the signatures turned in to qualify a ballot measure to recall Inland Assemblyman Anthony Adams, according to a breakdown from the county elections office.
The bulk of Adams’ 59th Assembly District is in San Bernardino County. Recall supporters there submitted the signatures of 44,590 alleged voters, out of 58,384 turned in district-wide.
Friday, though, a random sample projected that only 15,558 of the San Bernardino County signatures were valid. That doomed the entire effort.
Here’s what went wrong with the other 29,032, based on the sampling, according to Registrar of Voters Registrar of Voters Kari Verjill:
41.5 percent: Signers listed a San Bernardino County address but officials could find no record of their voter registration.
31.6 percent: Signers did not live in the 59th Assembly District.
