Bryan Anguiano, former field representative for Assemblyman Tom Lackey, tests the new ballot-marking device in January 2020 at the Lancaster Library.

More than 5.7 million ballots have been returned through Sept. 3 with exactly one week to go in the California gubernatorial recall election, according to Political Data Inc.’s ballot tracker.

That represents 26% of the more than 22.2 million ballots mailed to registered voters in the state. More than 16.5 million ballots remain.

The recall ballot asks two questions. The first asks voters if they want to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom. The second question asks voters to choose from among 46 candidates to replace him as governor, should a majority of voters choose “yes” to the first question. Voters may answer either question or both, according to the Secretary of State’s office.

Those who prefer to vote in person can do so at one of 12 voter centers in the Valley.

Time to make Newsom "PAY" for his lack of compassion, his lies, for "all" the fires that are consuming California, and all the stench he has brought to the position....You know the leftwing weasels have a plan, (the scumbags always do) Time for "you" to stand and deliver....so that any dishonest actions that the Dems take, will be overridden. Or you can just mask up and kneel, and stand by and watch, as the Democrats slowly take "everything" you hold dear...away from you. Elder has my Vote. Let's make history and elect the first black man to the Governor's office...and watch Elder make history as one of California's best Governors (just like Ronald Reagan was). ""Stand and Deliver"" !! RECALL NEWSOM !!
