Wisconsin: Signatures due for Governor/Lieutenant Governor recall; Petitioners claim they are nearing amount

Signatures are due on October 27 for the recall effort against Governor Tony Evers (D) and Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes (D) over the responses to the coronavirus pandemic and the unrest in Kenosha. Petitioners would need 668,327 signatures to get on the ballot. Petitioners claim that they had over 625,000 signatures. Wisconsin does have an unusual eligible voter law, which allows signatures to be counted if the signer is just eligible and not registered. Even so, we probably would expect that they need somewhere on the order of 725,000 signatures to succeed.
