California's Recall Election
California voters face an unusual political moment this month. For only the second time in state history, voters will decide in the middle of a governor’s term whether to keep this elected official in office. While recall attempts are common in California, what is unique is an actual recall election. This year, however, a sufficient number of voters – more than 1.5 million – signed their names to a petition to force an election.
