Gascon Recall Campaign Surpasses Required Threshold to Make November Ballot

Well, it’s official. The Recall DA George Gascon Campaign has surpassed 566,857 signatures collected as of June 14th, which equates to 10% of registered voters in Los Angeles County and is the required threshold to officially initiate a recall.  Organizers maintain that it is the most signatures ever collected in Los Angeles County for any petition.

The campaign is now focused on collecting as many additional signatures as possible to ensure there is a necessary cushion to cover those that are invalidated by the Registrar.

“We are officially within striking distance of initiating a recall against George Gascon, but the urgency for signature collection in these final days will be greater than ever,” said campaign organizers in a statement.  “Simply clearing the required threshold is not enough – we must build the necessary cushion for signatures that are inevitably invalidated.  We are urging every registered voter in Los Angeles County to mail in their petition by no later than June 24 to ensure they arrive on time, or alternatively, drop them off at one of our permanent signing locations by June 30.  The only thing that can stop us at this point is complacency.”

The official deadline for signature submission to County Registrar is July 6, 2022.
