Both the petitions claim the recalls are due to votes for Colorado's participation in the National Popular Vote movement, oil and gas reform, comprehensive human sexuality education, and the Red Flag Law. Pettersen's recall petition adds her vote in favor of a standardized school vaccine exemption process.

A move to recall Rep. Tom Sullivan was pulled last month.
