Dolton Mayoral Recall Referendum Passes –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On June 29, 2022

Dolton, IL. (ECWd) –

The referendum to permit mechanism for recalling Dolton Mayors passed with 56.4% of the vote, and the referendum to recall Mayor Tiffany Henyard, (subject to recall mechanism referendum passage) passed with a vote of 56%.

This doesn’t mean either referenda will take effect anytime soon.

Henyard filed suit in circuit court to take both referenda off the ballot, and the circuit court agreed.

That decision was appealed to the appellate court, who ordered the votes be counted, pending a final decision by the appellate court.

This is the second time a recall has been attempted in Dolton (read about it here and here)- the earlier 2015 attempt (ironically pushed by several Dolton Trustees including Tiffany Henyard) was struck down by the appellate court because it was adopted by the village trustees instead of being placed before the voters.
