  •  Easy to get over 50 percent of the (11+ / 0-)

    the needed signatures for a Walker recall in Dane County alone by demographics. Add Milwaukee and Milwaukee County, Kenosha, Racine, Lacrosse, the Superior lakeshore, and surprisingly, the Fox River Valley cities,and Stevens Point,  you should be able to make up the rest. These are the areas to concentrate on. Put less effort elsewhere in the state, but use these areas as insurance. The goal is 600,000 signatures (actually need 540, 000 to make the 25% threshold) to account for challenges, inspections and injunctions from what will be an extremely well funded opponent.

    •  Many more than 600,000 would be best (3+ / 0-)

      The other side will challenge every signature, without a doubt. All kinds of little things like using Bob instead of Robert, writing an address or date a bit sloppily, etc., etc.

      They may also appeal the certification of the petition to the GAB (election board) and to the circuit court. It will be vital to be sure there are plenty of valid signatures to withstand all these challenges.

    •  540,208. (0+ / 0-)

      Had that as my placard today.
