The G.A.B. has been notified by a number of municipalities that will have a recall election in conjunction with the August 14, 2012 Partisan Primary.  In our ongoing effort to ensure a successful and problem-free fall election cycle, we have developed two sets of instructions for conducting a recall at the Partisan Primary.  Each municipality that will have a recall election on the date of the Partisan Primary has been contacted directly by the G.A.B. with these procedures.

One set of instructions outlines the procedures for ballot preparation and processing for municipalities using hand count paper ballots.  The other set of instructions outlines the same procedures for municipalities using optical scan voting equipment.

We hope these instructions are helpful as you conduct these elections.   Please contact the G.A.B Help Desk if you have questions on these  procedures.  The Help Desk may be reached at (608) 261-2828, or
