September 14 is not a day that California voters are accustomed
to going to the polls, but this was not a normal election. A

signatures to go before voters in an election that cost taxpayers
more than $250 million.

Most voters have received their mail ballots for the September 14
Recall Election and the CFT is hearing many questions. Here
we answer the most common questions about the recall ballot
and voting and share CFT recommendations and resources.
While Governor Newsom continues to have our backs by putting in
place the strongest worker protections in the nation, anti-union
special interests are funneling millions into the recall campaign
to weaken or eliminate laws that protect our pay, health care,
retirement and safety on the job.
CFT has taken a position on the right-wing recall of Governor
Gavin Newsom: Our union is urging members to vote “No” on this
expensive and distracting political stunt. The Gubernatorial
Recall Election will be held September 14, 2021.
