(LOS ANGELES, CA) – Today, the Recall DA George Gascon campaign announced it has collected over 450,000 signatures as of May 13th, with thousands more being turned in daily and millions of petitions being mailed out directly to voters this week.
To get the recall on the ballot, the campaign must collect 566,857 signatures from registered Los Angeles County voters (10% of the total current registered voters). The deadline for submission to the Registrar is July 6, 2022.
“With 50 days to go, we are continuing to see increases in signature collection and anticipate additional bumps as our mail program is fully deployed. We are on the cusp of qualifying this recall and positioned exactly where we need to be to hit our goals within the remaining timeframe. If residents and community leaders continue to step up, this will be the beginning of the end of George Gascon’s reign of terror over Los Angeles.” – The Recall DA George Gascon Campaign
