Each signer of a recall petition shall add to his signature his place of residence giving the street and number or other significant designation if there shall be no street and number.  One of the signers to each such paper shall take an oath that the statement therein made is true as he believes and that each signature appended to the paper is the genuine signature of the person whose name it purports to be.  Within 10 days from date of filing the petition the county clerk shall complete his examination and ascertain whether or not such petition is signed by the requisite number of qualified voters, shall attach to the petition his certificate showing the result of his examination and shall by certified or registered mail send a copy of the certificate to the person filing the petition.  If by that certificate the petition is shown to be insufficient it may be amended within 10 days from the date of said certificate.  The county clerk shall within 5 days after such amendment make a similar examination and determination of the amended petition, and if the certificate shall show the same to be insufficient, it shall be returned to the person filing it without prejudice to the filing of a new petition to the same effect.
