STATEWIDE SPECIAL ELECTION INFORMATION
At the October 7, 2003, Statewide Special Election there will be three questions on the ballot. The first is a two-part question regarding the recall of the governor. The second and third questions are ballot measures (Propositions 53 and 54).
The recall question contains two parts. You may vote on both parts or on just one. Either way, your vote will be counted. The first part will ask, "Shall Gray Davis be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor?"
The second part will list the names of candidates running to replace the governor if he is recalled. If you choose to vote for a replacement candidate, you may vote for only one of the many candidates.
If more voters mark "yes" than "no" on the first part of the recall question, the governor will be removed from office. If more voters mark "no" than "yes," the governor will remain in office.
If the governor is recalled, the candidate who receives the most votes will be elected as the new governor. That person can be sworn in as the governor once the results of the election are certified.
This pamphlet includes the "statement of reasons" submitted by the proponents of the recall, the governor's answer to that statement, and arguments for or against the recall. It also contains information on both state propositions.
