    Has anyone read the constitution of Florida?

    If a president can be impeached, cant a sheriff? Are the voters so non interested they dont care or dont want to know?

    Can other members of county government be impeached? Why dont some of you smart posters answer this?

    The Florida laws governing recall pertain to certain elected local officials, as determined by Florida Statute Annotated §100.361.

    Not all elected local officials are eligible for recall in Florida.

    Those eligible must have been elected to a governing body of a municipality or chartered county.[1] Twenty of Florida's 67 counties are charter counties.[2]

    100.361 Municipal recall.—
    (1) APPLICATION; DEFINITION.—Any member of the governing body of a municipality or charter county, hereinafter referred to in this section as “municipality,” may be removed from office by the electors of the municipality. When the official represents a district and is elected only by electors residing in that district, only electors from that district are eligible to sign the petition to recall that official and are entitled to vote in the recall election. When the official represents a district and is elected at-large by the electors of the municipality, all electors of the municipality are eligible to sign the petition to recall that official and are entitled to vote in the recall election. Where used in this section, the term “district” shall be construed to mean the area or region of a municipality from which a member of the governing body is elected by the electors from such area or region. Members may be removed from office pursuant to the procedures provided in this section. This method of removing members of the governing body of a municipality is in addition to any other method provided by state law.
    (2) RECALL PETITION.—
    (a) Petition content.—A petition shall contain the name of the person sought to be recalled and a statement of grounds for recall. The statement of grounds may not exceed 200 words, and the stated grounds are limited solely to those specified in paragraph (d). If more than one member of the governing body is sought to be recalled, whether such member is elected by the electors of a district or by the electors of the municipality at-large, a separate recall petition shall be prepared for each member sought to be recalled. Upon request, the content of a petition should be, but is not required to be, provided by the proponent in alternative formats.
    5. In a municipality or district of 10,000 or more but fewer than 25,000 registered electors, the petition shall be signed by at least 1,000 electors or by 10 percent of the total number of registered electors of the municipality or district as of the preceding municipal election, whichever is greater.

    (d) Grounds for recall.—The grounds for removal of elected municipal officials shall, for the purposes of this act, be limited to the following and must be contained in the petition:
    1. Malfeasance;
    2. Misfeasance;
    3. Neglect of duty;
    4. Drunkenness;
    5. Incompetence;
