Ballots are in the Mail
On September 14 the people will have a decision to make: recall Governor Newsom or retain him in office. Ballots will begin to arrive in the mailbox of every eligible voter in California starting mid-August.
What is on the Ballot?
According to the website Courage California Institute, “The election is scheduled for September 14, 2021. The recall ballot will ask voters only two questions: (1) Should Gavin Newsom be removed from office? and, (2) If Gavin Newsom is removed, who should replace him as governor? If over 50% of voters vote “yes” on the first question, Gov. Newsom will be removed and the candidate who receives the most votes on the second question will replace him. Gov. Newsom is barred from entering the race, so voters are required to select another candidate from the long list of individuals who will enter the race.”
Why is There a Recall Effort?
The recallgavin2020.com website lists 65 reasons for the recall effort. Some of those reasons are:
- Fighting to stop Central Valley Farmers from getting the water they need
- Massive executive orders and acting without the consent of the legislature
- $2 billion in unemployment fraud
- $1 billion for unemployment checks for prisoners/felons
- Highest sales tax rate in the nation
- Highest poverty rate in the nation
- Highest vehicle registration cost in the nation
- Highest state income tax in the nation
- Highest homelessness rate in the nation
