California Governor Gavin Newsom will face a recall election as one-point-six-million signatures have been verified. Secretary of State Shirley Weber and her staff are still checking signatures.
Voters have 30 business days to ask elections officials to remove their names from the petition, if they have suddenly decided that Newsom is doing a good job and should remain in the Governor’s Office.
If that effort falls short, then there will be a recall election in the Fall of 2020.
If Newsom wins the recall election, he will face re-election in November 2022

Organizers of the recall effort against Gov. Newsom collected enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot. The California secretary of state’s office announced Monday, April 26, 2021 that more than 1.6 million signatures had been verified, about 100,000 more than needed to force a vote on the first-term Democrat.
