Urgent Actions

Recall Election - September 14, 2021
Published on: 7/11/2021
Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters on or about August 16, 2021

What will be on the recall ballot?

The Recall ballot will have two questions.

1. First, voters will be asked to vote “yes” or “no” to the question of whether Governor Newsome should be removed from office.

2. Second, voters will be asked to select a replacement candidate. The votes for a successor candidate will only be counted if more than 50% of those casting ballots in the election vote to recall the Governor.

Must voters vote on both questions on the recall ballot?

No. According to the State Elections Office, voters can vote on either one or both questions on the recall ballot.
Urgent - Take Action to Pass the For the People Act!
Published on: 6/26/2021
The nation has seen a resurgence of anti-voter bills. These bills are an existential threat to our country and the promise of one person, one vote. They put forward oppressive measures and unjust barriers that make our fundamental right to vote increasingly difficult, particularly for Black and brown Americans.

The best tool to counter these denials of the freedom to vote is the For the People Act.
