Current Recall Status

Over 1,000,000 signatures collected to date.

On November 6th, 2020, a judge granted the Recall Effort a FULL 120 day extension to gather the required signatures, now due March 17, 2021. 

Within weeks, Rescue CA was formed in order to double the effort to get the signatures in.

“This is happening at exactly the right time, we have just gotten the 120 day extension. This new committee, supported by dozens of prominent elected officials and seasoned professionals, is a perfect complement to our volunteers. We are the army, and they are the cavalry. I could not be more pleased.” – Orrin Heatlie, Lead Proponent of the Recall

“From the beginning I have been impressed with the efforts of the original petitioners. I was pleased to be asked to continue supporting the cause by Republican elected officials and Republican party leaders throughout the state. I hope we will be able to support the recall in a fashion that respects the passion and the efforts of the volunteers which has gotten us this far.” – Anne Dunsmore, Co-Chair, Rescue California
