SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Tuesday is the last today that California voters can request to have their signature removed from the petition to recall Governor Newsom.
The California Secretary of State’s Office said that in April it verified the signatures needed to force a vote. Voters who want their signature taken off the petition have to send a written request to the county elections office with their name, address, and signature. Once all those are in, the secretary of state will go back and see if there are still enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.READ MORE: Body Of Missing UC Davis Graduate Catherine Serou Found In Russia, Reports Say
