Is the date the Wisconsin GAB is proposing for all recall elections, via TPM:
Wisconsin election officials have now closed in on a proposed date for holding the the state’s wave of recalls: June 5, an extension of one week.
The Government Accountability Board (GAB), the non-partisan agency that oversees elections in the state, met Monday to approve recalls against four Republican state senators. They also sought to resolve some of the issues surrounding the recalls of Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, before they officially trigger those recalls.
After discussion amongst the board, and questions with both Democratic and Republican attorneys, the board voted unanimously to ask a judge for a one-week extension — rather than two weeks, as the GAB staff had recommended.
Assuming that this request is granted, that means the primaries will be held on May 8, and the general election June 5.

A Wisconsin judge on Monday struck down the state’s voter identification law less than a week after another judge temporarily stopped it, complicating plans for state officials who want the law in place for the upcoming presidential primary.
Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess’ issued the permanent injunction, finding the law unconstitutional because it would abridge the right to vote.
He wrote in his eight-page ruling that “voter fraud is no more poisonous to our democracy than voter suppression.”
