    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - The Recall Dunleavy campaign’s signature-gathering effort is shifting gears and using alternative methods to reach the 71,252 signatures needed to call a special election.

    According to The Midnight Sun, the group shifted to a by-mail petition process, sending out more than 20,000 packets as of earlier this month, and now it’s announced opportunities to sign via drive-thru.

    The campaign announced it will be holding drive-thru signing events this weekend in Fairbanks and Anchorage, with the possibility of more later this summer.

    The announcement says that volunteers will be wearing personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 at the drive-thru events.

    Other areas of the state, including Juneau, will still need to find other ways to sign, at least for now.
