      Group wanting to recall Snyder can collect signatures


      The group that is fronting a recall effort against Gov. Rick Snyder can begin collecting voter signatures in an effort to make the ballot.



      A three-person election panel in Washtenaw County voted 2-1



      Monday that a petition sponsored



      by a group called Michigan Rising



      has clear language.



      Supporters of recalling the Republican governor



      next would have to collect roughly 807,000 valid



      signatures to put



      the measure on a ballot.



      An effort to recall Snyder fizzled last year, falling well short



      of the required signatures.



      The Snyder administration has said it believes citizens will be



      more focused on recent economic



      and state budget improvements in



      Michigan than an effort to recall the governor.



      No Michigan governor has ever been recalled from office.
