Petition update

Posted in

Governor Walker's recall petitions will not be posted online today.  The G.A.B. staff is evaluating the privacy concerns of individuals who have contacted us about posting the petitions online.

What's happening now?

Posted in

As you can see on the webcam, the focus has shifted away from scanning petitions.

Staff is still working to verify the petitions scanned so far in order to provide accurate copies to the committees of Gov. Walker and Lt. Gov. Kleefisch.

Staff is also working on determining the sufficiency of the State Senate recall petitions.  For an explanation of exactly what they're doing, please read the manual they're using.

New webcam angle

Posted in

This afternoon we moved the webcam from its perch above the scanning area to a new home.

The new camera angle now shows our workers who are verifying individual petition pages.  They are currently working on the Senate recall petitions.

More information on the details of that verification process will be posted soon.
