Every two years, there is a window of time when the Statement of Information can be filed electronically. The rest of the time, updated Statements of Information must be filed either by mail or over-the-counter. We usually use a service in Sacramento to do them over-the-counter, so that if the SOS clerk finds any errors, the service can call me and correct them at the counter, and so that we get the endorsed-filed copy back faster.
Yes, anyone can file a new Statement of Information. The SOS does not check that the person submitting is an actual officer.
I suggest you file a new Statement of Information updating your current officers and directors, and check the SOS webstie every couple of days for a while, to make sure your ex-officer has not made her own filing.
