    Only if the state's Constitution allows it. Some states have a recall process, which involves voters. Most have an impeachment process, which does not. Generally, governors are removed at the ballot box, by voters, when they seek reelection. I do not believe any state or any government body allows for direct removal by collecting signatures on a petition. Such action might spur legislative bodies to pursue impeachment, or spur a governor to resign, but would have no force of law on their own.

    It depends on the laws of a state. Some can do that some can't.

      Not in every state, and probably not in most. In most, impeachment is the process of removal and the voters have no DIRECT say.
