Poll: More WI voters want to limit recall elections

Posted:

More people in Wisconsin want to change the process for recall elections.

That's according to a new poll released Wednesday from Marquette Law School.

The poll 50 percent of Wisconsin voters want to limit recall elections so they happen only if an office holder commits a crime. Forty-four percent of voters want to keep recall laws the same, but support for that has fallen since January.  Now, the poll reveals more voters want to limit those elections.

Just two weeks ago, Wisconsin held recall elections for six races including governor. Last year, the state held nine recall races. A recent estimate showed spending on all 15 races will easily top $125 million.
