GAB unveils recall petition center

State election officials today for the first time revealed where they’ve been checking the recall petitions filed against the guv, lt. guv and four state senators.

GAB Director Kevin Kennedy said the agency decided to give the media tours of the building today because the scanning process is now complete and there are electronic copies of the thousands of pages filed and still stored on site.

“We’re trying to add to the transparency of the process,” GAB Director Kevin Kennedy said.

Temporary workers have spent the past month working out of the state’s Central Services Building just east of Madison’s downtown. The building also houses the Department of Administration’s Mail Services operation and the University of Wisconsin Art Department's Tandem Press.

The facility was under 24-hour security until the scanning process was completed about two weeks ago and still has Capitol Police staffing it as long as GAB workers and temporary employees are in the building.

The one-story, gray brick building along the Yahara River includes a fenced-in parking lot that restricts access to the entrance of the recall petition center.

There are still about 50 temporary workers staffing the operation with at least two regular GAB staffers on site at all times. With the scanning now complete, the employees are now focused on inputting information for a database the GAB is creating of each page filed.
