Important Information on the California Gubernatorial Recall Election
As you may know, California will be conducting a recall election on September 14th. This election will determine who our governor will be through 2022 and will cost the state of California $276 million, according to the State Finance Department, so I strongly encourage you to participate.
Below is important information about your ballot and polling locations. To find out more, follow the link to the California Secretary of State website - https://www.sos.ca.gov/
- All California active registered voters should have received a vote-by-mail ballot by now.
- The recall ballot asks two questions: 1) Do you want to recall Governor Newsom? and 2) If the governor is recalled, who do you want to replace him?
- If 50% or more vote NO on question 1, the governor would remain in office.
- If more than 50% vote YES on question 1, the governor would be removed from office and the person with the most votes on question 2 would replace him.
- Voters can vote on either one or both parts of the recall ballot.
- There are several safe ballot return options available:
- return by mail, no postage required; must be postmarked by Election Day;
- drop off at a secure ballot drop box;
- drop off at a Vote Center; or
- drop off to the county elections office by 8:00 p.m. on September 14, 2021.
