25-4305. Recall of state officers; application; deposit; filing, when. The recall of a state officer, except the secretary of state, is proposed by filing an application with the secretary of state. The recall of the secretary of state is proposed by filing an application with the lieutenant governor, who shall perform the duties imposed on the secretary of state in the recall of other state officers. A deposit of $100 must accompany the application. This deposit will be remitted to the state treasurer, in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the state general fund if a petition is not properly filed. If a petition is properly filed the deposit shall be refunded. No application for the recall of a state officer may be filed during the first 120 days or the last 200 days of the term of office of such officer.
