Newsom recall election date set: California voters to cast ballots on September 14
California Gov. Gavin Newsom will face a recall election on Sept. 14, Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis announced on Thursday.
Her declaration follows more than a year of petition-gathering and campaigning fueled, in part, by outrage over the governor’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether he will actually lose his job, however, is up to voters.
The date for the California gubernatorial recall has been set as September 14. Voters will determine whether or not to remove Gavin Newsom from office and, if they do, who will fill out the remainder of his term.
