Recall Wisconsin Governor Walker Petition Consists Of Over 152,300 Pages
WISCONSINREPORT.COM (01/29/2010) - The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board staff has scanned more than 152,300 Recall Governor Walker petition pages. The number of signatures on the petition has not yet been estimated, according to GAB. Copies of the petition pages can be seen on the internet as of Monday, January 30, 2012. In the meantime, GAB has completed delivery of all digital copies of recall petitions to a Governor Walker committee for review.
In total, G.A.B. staff scanned more than 152,300 petition pages for the Governorís recall, of which approximately 71,000 were delivered earlier this week. The Board has not yet estimated the number of signatures on the petitions, as the signature review process is just beginning.
The G.A.B. is currently verifying the completeness and accuracy of scanned petition pages for Lt. Governor Kleefisch, and expects to complete that work sometime this week.
On Monday, copies of the Governorís recall petitions will be posted online at http://gab.wi.gov for public viewing. Click the link "Recall Petitions Online" on the homepage.
Since four Senate recall petitions went online last week, the website has had more than 16,000 unique visitors and more than 410,000 page views.
In Wisconsin, recall petitions are public records.
Earlier this week, Judge Richard Niess granted the Boardís request for a 30-day extension to the 31-day statutory deadline for completing its review of the petitions, giving the Board a deadline of March 19.
Judge Niess also granted the four Senate incumbents a total of 20 days and the Governor and Lt. Governor a total of 30 days in which to file petition challenges. The clock for challenges starts the day after the incumbent receives copies of his or her petitions.
G.A.B. workers are now reviewing petition signatures for the four Senate recall petitions and the Governorís recall petitions. Crews will be working from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
Recall petition processing is happening at an undisclosed state facility in Madison. For security reasons, the location of the processing center is not being released until all the scanned petition pages have been verified for completeness and accuracy.
