An organization known as Dismiss Polis, was given the green light to hold a petition to recall Governor Jared Polis. Monday Colorado’s Secretary Of State, Jena Griswold, signed the petition measure . The group now has 60 days to collect more than 633,000 verified signatures. Their goal is to get 900,000.

Dismiss Polis, in a press release, cited four laws- recently supported and signed into law- as to why Governor Polis should be recalled:

Petitioners will be at the old Albertsons parking lot in Grand Junction near 12th and Orchard Ave. on Thursday from 2-7 pm.
