Recall of California Gov Gavin Newsom Officially Gets Enough Signatures To Trigger New Election
The effort to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom just got the worst kind of bad news for a politician – he will face a recall election. The California Secretary of State just gave Newsom the devastating news saying the effort to recall him had received the necessary number of verified signatures to trigger a recall election.
The California Secretary of State just announced that the threshold of verified signatures, which was set at 1,495,709, had been met. The campaign to oust Newsom collected more than 1.6 million verified signatures easily beating the goal, according to the secretary of state’s office.
“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” Secretary Weber said in a statement.
“A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”
Weber released a press release that said:
California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley N. Weber has announced that the threshold of verified signatures reported by counties has been met for the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.
The valid signatures in the 10th report are 1,626,042, which exceeds the total of 1,495,709 signatures required. Counties still have until April 29th to verify the validity of any remaining signatures.
“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” Secretary Weber said. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”
Pursuant to Elections Code section 11108(b), any voter who has signed the recall petition may provide a written request to their county elections official to have their signature removed from the petition between today, April 26, 2021, and June 8, 2021.
There is no specific format required; however, the withdrawal must include the following:
Residence address (at time of signing the recall petition)
If after this period the recall election still has a sufficient number of signatures, the Department of Finance will have 30 business days to estimate the cost of the recall election.
Following that, the Joint Legislative Budget Committee will have 30 calendar days to review and comment on those estimates before the Lieutenant Governor sets the date for the recall election.
