The governor of the US state of Wisconsin is facing a rare recall election, seen as a key test ahead of the presidential election in November.

Republican Governor Scott Walker faces Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett more than a year after passing a law limiting workers' collective bargaining rights.

Critics gathered nearly one million signatures to force the recall vote.

The outcome of Wisconsin's vote could have implications for the presidential election.

Walker is only the third governor in US history to face a recall vote.
