Should vote to be counted
January 31, 2012 - Lisa Reed
The Government Accountability Board has not yet estimated the number of signatures on the 152,300 petition pages filed for a recall against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
I think that only those who voted in the last election for Wisconsin Governor should be counted as a legitimate signature on the recall petition.
If you did not vote, you should not be able to sign the papers to recall the governor.
Just because you are a registered voter, but didn’t vote, shouldn’t automatically give you the right to sign the recall petition. On the other hand, if you did vote, then you have the right to sign. That’s my opinion.
A recall election will cost taxpayers $9 million. That’s a lot of of cha-ching for an election that is not even warranted in my opinion. I say, “let the governor do his job and fulfill his term.”
According to the GAB, 540,208 signatures are required for Walker’s recall, and 1 million signatures have been estimated to have been collected. The number of those signatures that are legit have not been made public yet.
