NO on Recall Phonebanking Is Here

We need your help to stop the recall of Governor Newsom. Not only do you need to VOTE NO when the ballots arrive, and then mail your ballot back, we also need your assistance to help spread the word about this recall attempt. 

Starting this Thursday at 6:00pm, we will be calling Democrats in our own backyard here in Los Angeles County to make sure people know about the recall and the importance of voting No.

Democrats, independents, and progressives are united in opposition to the Republican recall. A grassroots movement of Californians stands with Gavin Newsom.

Governor Newsom led the state through a global pandemic, record wildfires fueled by climate change, and two years with Trump in the White House, he has earned the trust of Californians.

He is working every day against difficult odds to keep our families safe, distribute vaccines, protect families from eviction and provide billions in direct relief to individuals and struggling small businesses. 

This recall is led by a partisan Republican coalition that includes national Republicans, anti-vaxxers, and hardcore anti-immigrant Trump supporters, and it’s being funded by some of Trump’s biggest donors. Pure and simple: this is a Republican effort to overturn the results of the 2018 election and stop our state’s progress on COVID recovery. Governor Newsom won’t be distracted by this recall – he’ll keep his focus on California’s recovery. That means it’s up to us to take action together to stop the recall.

When is the vote?
The deadline to vote has been scheduled for September 14. Governor Newsom signed an executive order earlier this year mandating that each registered voter will receive a mail-in ballot for all elections in 2021. These ballots will be arriving in mid-August.

How does the recall vote work? / Why should I be concerned?
If more than 50% of voters say “yes” to the recall, the candidate who gets the plurality of votes in the 2nd question will become governor. This means a Trump ally with 30% or less of the votes can possibly become governor. During the 2003 recall, Gray Davis was recalled and a Republican became governor without a majority vote. We can’t be complacent because it would be a huge mistake to allow the GOP to force a Republican into the governorship.

The latest polling shows that a Republican victory is within reach, but only because many Democrats who support Governor Newsom don’t know about the recall election. That is why our efforts to reach voters are so important.

If the Republicans take the Governorship, they will:

  • block our State Legislature’s work on healthcare, childcare, social justice, prison reform, and so much more;
  • appoint judges across our state;
  • appoint US Senators and state constitutional officers if an opening occurs;
  • stop all progress on solving climate change!
