MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin election officials have been granted an additional month to verify almost two million signatures on recall petitions against Governor Scott Walker and five other Republicans.
That's what a Madison judge ruled Wednesday.
The Government Accountability Board says they've been overwehlmed by the volume of names and trying to comply with a Waukesha County judge's order to find fraudulent and duplicate signatures.
In the ruling, Dane County Judge Richard Niess said the board faces an unprecedented task and deserves more time to do its work.
State law allows the GAB 31 days to verify recall signatures. The elections board were put on the clock starting January 18.
