Board details how it will review recall petitions

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin elections board says it anticipates hiring dozens of temporary workers and seeking a delay from the courts in order to review petitions seeking to recall Gov. Scott Walker.

A memo released Thursday by the Government Accountability Board details the steps it plans to take.

Petitions are currently being circulated to recall both Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. There are also ongoing recalls targeted four Republican state senators.

All of the petitions are due Jan. 17.

Board director Kevin Kennedy says he expects it will take 60 days rather than 31 to review the signatures and consider challenges. The board also anticipates hiring 50 temporary workers to review the signatures at a secured location.
