The official recall effort against California Governor Gavin Newsom reached a major milestone on Thursday (Dec 10, 2020) when they were notified by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla that they have collected and met the 10 percent threshold of signatures requirement per state election code.
This now mandates that registrar recorder officials in every county in California must begin hand verifying every petition that has been collected.
The campaign is also announcing that they have also collected more than 800,000 signatures that have or are in the process of being hand delivered to county election officials throughout California.
1.5 million verified signatures are required to trigger a special election to recall Newsom.
In an email from Robbie Anderson with the Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento to Orrin Heatlie, the Lead Proponent of RecallGavin2020:
“I thought you would like to know that the 10% threshold has been met by you and your team, so counties are now required to verify the signatures,” Anderson wrote.
Heatlie issued the following statement regarding the milestone:
“Today our efforts to Recall California Governor Gavin Newsom have entered a dramatic new phase, and we cannot be prouder of everyone who is working tirelessly to remove America’s worst governor from office,” Heatlie said.
“The campaign is full speed ahead. To date, our amazing team of volunteers have gathered about 800,000 signatures from California voters throughout the state. That is an incredible feat, given the pandemic shutdowns, the wildfires, searing summer heat, riots, and horrible smoke,” Randy Economy, Senior Advisor for RecallGavin2020.com said in a statement.
“This is the greatest grassroots movement in the history of America, and the People will be heard in 2021,” added proponent Mike Netter. “We are taking back our state,’ he added.

They definitely should be so proud of not wearing masks and being bullies to get people to sign the petitions. Especially when they weren’t essential and standing on corner’s during the stay at home orders.
As much as people hate Newsom he has actually put some great protections in place to protect Californians. My daughter lives in Texas and there are no protections for them. Heck she couldn’t even stay home to quarantine when her husband had Covid. Think about that.
If you’re concerned stay home and never come out, nobody will force you out. I believe you have should have the right and freedom to protect yourself as you see fit. Also, I believe everybody should have the freedom to provide for their family. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
FREEDOM to work, FREEDOM to stay home, FREEDOM to go to French Laundry. FREEDOM!!!
He done more than Rubio or the moron in florida
you have more of a chance getting hit by a bus or in a car accident. I suggest you stay in your house until covid is completely gone, which may never happen, and living your life in fear.
Gavin Newsom is a low life Democrap/Liberal/Jackass that is hurting the State of California Economy by keeping everything closed for the last ten months!
Why verify signatures when you don’t have to for elections!
