Petition to Recall California’s Newsom Reaches 820,000 Signatures, On Track to Qualify for the Ballot

A legal initiative to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is gaining steam, with organizers rapidly approaching the legal requirements to trigger a recall election that could remove the far-left Democrat from office.

The latest recall attempt has easily surpassed previous pushes to recall Newsom, and appears on track to easily get enough signatures to put him on the ballot.

California’s recall law requires that a petition for a gubernatorial recall receive a number of signatures equivalent to 12% of voter turnout in the previous state election, requiring a total of 1,495,709. The main group advocating for Newsom’s recall, Recall Gavin Newsom, reported collecting their 800,000th signature in support of the recall, placing them more than halfway to the recall election threshold. A court ruling ensured that the deadline for the recall petition will expire in March, giving organizers more than two months to collect 700,00 signatures.
