Defending My CA

Vote NO on the Recall!

California has the largest immigrant population in the nation, and it has benefited — as an economy and as a society — from empowering them and enacting policies that give them equal standing with other residents. Immigrants here know their value, and their civic participation has enriched this state.

Now, a recall election to be held on September 14 seeks to overturn more than 25 years of work to make this a prosperous, immigrant-friendly state. California’s immigrants will not allow a return to the old days ruled by xenophobia and immigrant-bashing. We are getting into the ring and we are fighting back with a strong #NORecall vote. We will not let an anti-immigrant Republican minority ruin our state’s future. We are a force to reckon with. We will vote #NORecall!

When am I voting?

What will be on my ballot?

September 14, 2021, California Gubernatorial Recall Election ballot will have two parts:

  1. There will be a recall question presented on the ballot: Shall GAVIN NEWSOM be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?

We recommend: Once you vote “NO”, skip question #2.”

2. Following that recall question, all qualified replacement candidates for the office of governor will be listed.  

Must voters vote on both parts of the recall ballot? No. Voters can vote on either one or both parts of the recall ballot. Again, we recommend: Once you vote “NO”, skip question #2.” 

What are we defending by voting NO on the Recall?

When immigrants in CA vote against the Recall of Governor Newsom, we are defending:
