Minnesota: Petition sought in Governor recall over stay in place rules

Petitions are being sought for the recall of Governor Tim Walz (D) over shelter-in-place rules instituted to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

Minnesota is a malfeasance standard state and would require petitioners to meet a stringent requirement of malfeasance to get on the ballot. Minnesota has generally reject all recalls since its state law was approved in 1996. However, in 2018 there was a recall against Tracy Councilman Tony Peterson (he survived the vote).

If approved, petitioners would need about 610,000 signatures to get on the ballot.
