Breaker off...still have 10V at switch?

Any idea why I would still have 10V AC at a wall switch, from Hot to GND, even with breaker turned off?

Classic symptom of using a digital multimeter instead of an analog multimeter. If you are using a digital it isn't real. Just a induced or capacitive voltage the digital's impedance is to high to bleed off.

OK, thanks Ray! Since the circuits are working properly with the breaker on, this eases my mind.
