The Division of Elections has rejected a petition calling for the recall of Anchorage Rep. Lindsey Holmes.

While the recall group exceeded the number of signatures required by the state, state attorneys weren’t compelled by their legal reasoning for removing Holmes from office. The group needed to prove that Holmes showed a “lack of fitness” for office, and they argued that Holmes violated a compact with voters when she changed her party affiliation to Republican not long after her election.

The recall group plans to file an appeal of the decision. There has never been a successful recall of an Alaska legislator.
