      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.
