Get Out the Vote!

Secure our Safety Throughout this Pandemic. Don’t Forget to Vote 

On September 14, 2021, California voters will decide whether to remove their governor in a recall election. Given the number of crises facing our state, this is an extremely important election. Historically, few people vote in off-year elections when a presidential candidate is not on the ticket. There is a very real danger that a tiny minority of voters will make this important decision that will affect every Californian. Your Vote Matters.

Important Election Dates

August 30: The last day to register to vote online and get a ballot in the mail. After this day, you will have to register to vote at a polling place, vote center, or county elections office.

September 4:Some early in-person voting begins.  

September 14:Election Day. You can register and cast a ballot in the recall through this day.  

October 14:Counties must finish counting ballots and certify their results. 

October 22:Deadline for the Secretary of State to certify the results. If the governor is recalled, he will need to vacate the office by this date, and the winning replacement candidate will be sworn in.  

June 7, 2022:Date of the California primary, which will include the Governor's Office.  

The recall ballot will have two questions: 

First Question: Shall Gavin Newsom be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?"

Voters will choose "Yes" or "No".

  • A "Yes" vote means you want Newsom to be recalled.
  • A "No" vote means you would like Newsom to remain governor.

Second Question: A list of 46 candidates who could potentially replace the governor if a recall is successful.

If more than 50% choose to recall Newsom, the candidate who wins the most votes will replace him. You CAN / SHOULD answer Question 2 even if you vote "No" on Question 1.  

There has been some confusion over the ballot, notably that if they vote for a candidate in the second question, would that erase a no vote on the first question? The answer is NO. Even if voters oppose the recall, they have the option of voting for a replacement candidate in case the recall is successful without affecting their "no" vote on the first question.
