We are one week away from the recall election.

Vice President Kamala Harris is due to campaign for Governor Newsom this week here in California. Senator Elizabeth Warren joined Newsom on the campaign trail this weekend. Republican Larry Elder also criss-crossed the state over the Labor Day weekend. "We encourage voters to act early and vote from the comfort of their home," said Interim Registrar of Voters Cynthia Paes. "Sign, seal and return your mail ballot to a trusted source. The sooner we receive your ballot, the sooner we can start processing it so it will be counted right when the polls close at 8 p.m. on election night."

Voters will be asked if they think Newsom should be recalled and if so, who should replace him. If more than 50% of voters vote to recall the governor, the replacement candidate with the most votes will take office. If Newsom is recalled, he would be the third U.S. governor and second in California to be removed from office through a recall election. The most recent recalled governor in California was Democrat Gray Davis, who was replaced by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2003.
