Federal Judge Rejects Lawsuit Claiming The Recall Is Unconstitutional

A federal judge has rejected a lawsuit that claimed the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit centered on the recall’s two-question ballot. The ballots asks voters whether Newsom should be recalled, and if so, who should replace him. The plaintiffs argued those questions violate the constitutional principle of “one person, one vote,” saying Newsom’s critics get two choices while his supporters have only one. But, The judge ruled voters do not have to vote for a replacement candidate, so it does not violate "one person, one vote." So far, election officials have received more than one million ballots.

The recall election is set for Sept. 14., and voters can visit here to track their ballot.
