"Recall" is the process by which the voters themselves can petition for the removal of an elected official. Depending on the state laws on the subject, once a certain number of voters signs the petition for recall, a special vote is scheduled for all voters to vote for or against removal of that official. Recall does not require any particular reason for the recall such as legal violations or dereliction of office.

("Impeachment" is another term related to the removal of an official Impeachment proceedings are instituted and concluded by the legislative branch only in order to remove an official for crimes or malfeasance in office. The voters have no say in the impeachment process.)

The US Constitution does not allow the recall of the President or of any federal officials , but House of Representatives had the power of impeachment.
