It’s Election Day in California, where voters are deciding the recall fate of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The ballot features two questions. The first question asks voters whether or not to recall Newsom. The second gives voters a choice between more than 40 candidates about who should replace him, if he is recalled.

While many have already voted early by mail or in person — ballots arrived in the mailboxes of every registered California voter last month — others will cast their ballots Tuesday.

Bay Area leaders including San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf have taken to social media to show their support of Newsom. Listen as KGO Hosts Chip Franklin, Pat Thurston and Nikki Medoro analyze the impact of this Election Day.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed retweeted President Biden encouraging every Californian to make their voice heard.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tells Californians to vote no on the recall election.

San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney reminds voters, “If you mail your ballot today, it WILL be counted if it is postmarked today. ”
