In Wisconsin, election petitions have always been public records, and in the interest of transparency, the Government Accountability Board continued that tradition by posting copies of the petitions online.
Recall petitions were removed from the website in early 2013 because the recall process is complete. They are still available in electronic format by making a public records request. The cost is $40 for four DVDs containing all the petitions in PDF form. Send requests and make checks payable to: Wisconsin Elections Commission, PO Box 7984, Madison, WI 53707-7984.
