These California counties are pushing the hardest for the Gavin Newsom recall

These California counties are pushing the hardest for the Gavin Newsom recall (SF Gate: 3/22/21)

Organizers hoping to force California Gov. Gavin Newsom into a recall election have to really like their chances after the secretary of state's office released another batch of petition signature numbers on Friday.

The state now reports roughly 1.2 million valid signatures through March 11, a figure close to the 1.5 million needed to trigger a recall election. There are still roughly 660,000 signatures yet to be processed by county elections officials, meaning organizers need only 45-50% of the outstanding signatures to be deemed valid. Clearing that threshold seems to be a near-certainty as the current signature validity rate is 82%.

All of the state-released reports offer a breakdown of signatures by county, and when using that data in conjunction with state voter registration data, it is possible to see which counties are most enthusiastic about the recall.

Below is an interactive map that shows the percentage of registered voters in every California county who have submitted a recall petition that has been processed and deemed valid by county officials. The county that submitted the most signatures per registered voters is Amador County, where roughly one in six registered voters has submitted a valid signature.

1. Counties where no one lives.

If these counties could win a recall vote against Newsom, every statewide office in California would already be held by republicans.

3. The object is to create a recall - not win it with these counties.

If the recall effort gets legs, the Republican propaganda machine (and itís $$$) will manipulate and motivate a shit show. Thatís the hail-Mary pass being thrown here.

9. What I meant is the populations in these counties

compared to LA and the SF bay area do not add up to enough to win a state wide election. That's why no state wide offices are currently held by republicans.

4. I hope California in their next session tightens up recall laws.

1.5 million out of tens of million of voters is not even remotely fair or I would say acceptable.

5. Same here. The current procedure is an abuse.

The threshold should be higher in a state this size.

2. Yup. We certainly have our share of maskholes. And for the fiscally (ir)responsible, this would

force a special election, despite the fact that we will be having a gubernatorial election next year. Go figure.

6. The State of Jefferson is no longer funny.

You would be hard pressed to find an area connected with lower population.
