September 14, 2021 California Gubernatorial Recall Election

Why is there a recall election?

Due to a successful recall petition that obtained the requisite number of signatures, a special statewide election will take place on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, for the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.


Voters will answer two questions on their ballot (this is an estimation, not an exact representation, of how the questions will appear on the ballot):

  1. Shall GAVIN NEWSOM be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?

    • Yes
    • No
  1. Candidates to succeed GAVIN NEWSOM as Governor if he is recalled:
    Select one (regardless of whether you voted Yes or No to the prior question).
