The Oakland County Elections Division completed its final review of a last-minute signature challenge submitted by Troy Mayor Janice Daniels late Monday afternoon, concluding that there are more than enough signatures to order a recall election for embattled Troy Mayor Janice Daniels, who was elected to office in November.

"The petitions contain 8,877 valid signatures which exceeds the minimum requirement of 7,985 valid signatures," reads a letter sent Monday afternoon to Recall Janice Daniels co-founder Matt Binkowski from Elections Director Joe Rozell. "In accordance with MCL 168.963(2), a recall election is hereby called to be held on November 6, 2012."
