There’s a reason that Caitlyn Jenner recently announced their run for Governor of California. For those who need a refresher: the recall campaign against Gavin Newsom gained traction over the last year as a result of his decisions as Governor in the wake of the pandemic.

Moments like a police officer coming out and publicly blaming Newsom for skyrocketing crime, getting restaurants and wineries suing the Governor over reopening, and all the meanwhile Newsom himself getting caught breaking his own COVID restrictions. All great motivators for a recall effort to start, and as of today officially reach the threshold necessary to trigger proceedings to boot Newsom out of office.

The official declaration came from the office of California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley N. Weber today.

According to the announcement a total of 1,495,709 signatures were required, 1,626,042 are now officially verified. This isn’t even the final tally before the conclusion of verification. Counties have three more days to send the remaining signatures in.

So what comes next?  According to Secretary Weber: "This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition. A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn."

In other words, if anyone who signed the Newsom recall petition changes their mind, they have until June 8 to formally withdraw their signature. All that’s needed is: voter’s name, residence address (at the time they signed the petition), and a voter’s signature.
