This thesis examines the effectiveness of Georgia's "Public Officers Recall Act" as a tool for Georgians seeking to remove elected officials from office. The methodology employed in this study is the case study approach.

The results of this study indicate that Georgia's recall law is effective. The results are significant because they indicate that voters in Georgia have an effective means to challenge and oust elected officials who are no longer satisfactory to them.
