Walker recall petitions to be posted online

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Government Accountability Board will be posting online copies of Governor Scott Walker's recall petitions on Monday.
 
In total, GAB staff scanned more than 152,300 petition pages for the Governor's recall, of which approximately 71,000 were delivered last week. The GAB has not yet estimated the number of signatures on the petitions, as the signature review process is just beginning.
 
The GAB is currently verifying the completeness and accuracy of scanned petition pages for Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, and expects to complete that work sometime next week.

The GAB is expected to have the petitions up for viewing sometime on Monday. If you'd like to see the petitions that have been posted online, click here. All you have to do is click the link "Recall Petitions Online." 
 
Since the 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 Board's request for a 30-day extension to the 31-day statutory deadline for completing its review of the petitions, giving the GAB a deadline of March 19.  Judge Niess also granted the four Senate incumbents a total of 20 days and Gov. Walker and Lt. Gov. Kleefisch 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.
