Let’s Stop the Recall of Governor Newsom!

/
14 mins read

Hello Ventura Indivisians,

VOTE NO on the Republican’s recall scam. 
It’s time to work for California! All hands on deck!
 

We MUST get out the vote this month to defeat the Republican-led attempt to recall Governor Newsom. The pro-recall strategy is to rely on apathy among Democrats, as well as the Republican’s desperate-for-a-win frenzy.Recent polling suggests that is exactly what may be the case. Replacing Governor Newsom with a Republican for even just one year risks California being represented by a Republican Senator until 2024 (and swinging control of the Senate to Mitch McConnell) if Dianne Feinstein were to retire. We need to do whatever we can to ensure that every Democratic voter in the state submits their ballot with a NO vote.

Background on who is behind this recall and what policy issues are at stake is available in this informative Recall Guide

What can I do, you ask? 

Plenty, we have actions for everyone. Choose the options that best suit you, but FIRST:

  • As a registered California voter you will automatically be mailed a ballot on August 16.
  • Vote NO on the recall. 
  • Mail back your ballot immediately before it gets buried under a stack of papers! 
  • Make sure you and everyone you love is registered to vote. Register here.
