2. Good Information from the above link...
"Under Wisconsin law, supporters of this recall effort now have 60 days to collect an amount of signatures equal to at least 25% of the vote cast for the office of governor at the last election within the same district or territory as that of the officeholder being recalled. The amount of signatures necessary to trigger a recall will vary from district to district, but will range from about 15,000 to 21,000 signatures per recalled senator.

If the supporters succeed in collecting enough signatures, the result is an effective do over election. The incumbent will automatically be a candidate in the election unless they resign from office, and Democrats and members of other political parties will be allowed to nominate opponents. The winner of a recall election is seated as soon as the election result is certified."
