The state Senate currently has a 19-14 Republican majority, with Democrats hoping to pick up three seats in recall elections and win the majority of the chamber back. They are collecting signatures in all eight Republican-held districts that are eligible. Under Wisconsin's recall law, elected officials must have served at least one year of their term before being recalled -- thus exempting the half of the Senate that was just elected in 2010.

In order to initiate a recall, signatures of at least 25 percent of the number of voters in the previous gubernatorial election, within the targeted district, must be collected in a 60-day window.
