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, the governor would remain in office.  If more than 50% vote YES, the governor would be removed from office and the person with the most votes would replace him.


Return your vote-by-mail ballot by mail with prepaid postage as long as it’s postmarked by September 14, 2021.  You can also return the ballot in-person at a secure ballot drop box, to a voting location, or your county elections office by 8:00 p.m. on September 14, 2021.


In-person voting locations will offer voter registration, replacement ballots, accessible voting machines, and language assistance to those who need it.


The County Voter Information Guides contain a sample of the ballot and the assigned voter polling place.  The recall proponent’s statement for reasons of recall and the Governors response are also printed in the County Voter Information Guide.
