Haven't voted in the recall yet? You still have more than one way to cast your ballot.

Original post made on Sep 10, 2021

Voters have until Tuesday, Sept. 14, to either postmark their ballots, drop them off at a designated ballot box or vote in person, but that doesn't mean they have to wait until the 11th hour on election day to participate.

I just saw a photo online with Newsom overlooking his wife's recall ballot. Who we vote for is private, but this was a little over the top.

Please Vote Now!

The state has only received ballots from 30% of voters so far.

Ballots must be post-marked or dropped at an official facility on Monday or Tuesday.

Looks like only 52% of ballots sent to Palo Alto residents have been returned so far:

Make sure you get yours in.


Edit: looks like the Weekly is breaking links. You'll need to remove the stuff after "pdf" at the end of the link in order to make it work.

Thanks to the PA Online editorial staff for this informative Voting Rights article. What is important is that your vote is your voice and in CA every effort is made as a matter of state public policy to ensure voters have unfettered access to the ballot box, by mail or in person and can even register to vote in their county of residence on the day of the election. Unlike those states in Red at Web Link which fight for voter suppression: Congratulations to the CA electorate and legislature to putting voting at the top of our civil rights. Alice Smith, National Voter Corps Executive Director
