The City of Portland, Oregon

Auditor Simone Rede

Promoting open and accountable government

Can an elected official who has been recalled run for City office in future elections?

A successful recall petition removes the candidate from their term of office, so the recalled candidate may not file for any special election to fill the remainder of their term. However, once the office is up for reelection for a new term, nothing prevents the recalled candidate from filing for the brand-new term.
