The election was held on the 14th day of September, 2021 to determine whether Gavin Newsom, Governor of the State of California, shall be recalled. He was not.
There were no propositions on the ballot. This means there were only two questions on the ballot that the whole state could vote on. Should the governor be recalled? If he is recalled, who will replace him?
How does a Recall Election work?
- There will be two questions on the ballot that every eligible Californian can vote on:
1. Do you want to recall the governor (remove him from office)?
2. If the governor is recalled, who do you want to replace him?
- If more than 50% of voters say “no” to the first question, the governor remains in office.
- If more than 50% of voters say “yes” to the first question, the person who gets the most votes on the second question becomes the governor.
- A replacement candidate does NOT need more than 50% of the votes to win, they simply need more votes than any of the other candidates.
- You don’t need to answer both questions! You can answer just the first or second question, or both. It’s your choice.
- No matter how you answer question 1 you can still vote for a replacement candidate.
