Eight people have filed nomination papers to run in the recall election against Scott Walker.

The Government Accountability Board was reviewing the signatures submitted before Tuesday’s deadline to determine if they had the 2,000 required to get on the ballot.

Democrats who filed are Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, Secretary of State Doug La Follette and state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout.

Gladys Huber is a Republican who is running as a Democrat as part of a state GOP plan to ensure there is a primary.

Arthur Kohl Riggs, a protester who the Associated Press says frequently videotapes newsmakers in the Capitol, filed to run as a Republican. Michael Mangan of West Allis also filed as a Republican.

Hariprasad Trivedi filed as an independent.
