MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's recall elections are unexplored territory. That means there's plenty to learn before the June 5 elections.
Democrats want to oust Governor Scott Walker and four other Republicans from office to punish them for stripping most public workers of nearly all their union rights.
Some of the things to know about this election is that absentee voting is technically already underway. Showing your photo ID will most likely not be required June 5. Candidates' campaign finance reports will emerge in chunks over the next few months.
The recalls could give the state a governor and lieutenant governor from opposing parties.
Incumbents who lose could get up to too-and-a-half weeks to leave their jobs and winners will serve until after regular elections roll around again in 2014.
