Alaska: Petitioners claim 18,000 signatures collected against Governor after first week

Governor Mike Dunleavy (R) is the target recall effort, with petitioners claiming to have 18000 signatures after the first week.

Alaska is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall state, so a showing of cause is needed (though the state courts has taken a lenient view of the the cause requirement in past instances).

Petitioners need to first get 28,501 signatures before the Division of Elections will consider if they meet the malfeasance standards. Then they would need 71,252 signatures to get to the ballot.
