(1/7/12) State election officials say a recall election aimed at Governor Scott Walker would cost at least nine million dollars.
The Government Accountability Board asked local election clerks to estimate the costs of a recall election, then added all the figures up. Backers of the recall election effort have until January 17th to collect 540 thousand signatures on petitions. Republicans say the cost estimates show this state can’t afford to keep holding recall elections.
