Protesters raise signs in front of Lakeshore High School in Stevensville to protest recent mask mandates at the start of the 2021 school year.

ST. JOSEPH — The recall election of two Lakeshore school board trustees will not be on the November ballot, but might be on the May ballot depending on the outcome of a court case Berrien County Judge Dennis Wiley is presiding over.

During an emergency hearing at the Berrien County Courthouse on Thursday, Wiley declined to reverse the decision made by county officials that there were not enough signatures on the recall petitions to force a recall election.
