Recall

In political science, the recall is a process through which a petition can force a new election. There is more specific representative recall which does not force a new general election, but only in one district of the jurisdiction. Any recall is an example of disapproval voting, as it signals widespread and popular disapproval of the government as whole, or a part of it.
