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.

KGO Hosts Chip Franklin, Pat Thurston, Nikki Medoro analyze the impact of this judgement day for Governor Gavin Newsom.
