The Gubernatorial Recall Election is Tuesday, Sept. 14 and voters can return their ballots by mail, at a local Drop Box or go to polling places in Riverbank on Election Day.

Vote centers for in-person voting are open from Saturday, Sept. 11 through Monday, Sept. 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; open on Election Day on Sept. 14 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Those centers include the Riverbank Teen Center, 3600A, Santa Fe, Riverbank and TeleContact Resource Services, 6436 Oakdale Road, Riverbank.

Indoor ballot drop boxes are available at O’Brien’s Market, 6331 Oakdale Road, Riverbank and Riverbank Library, 3442 Santa Fe St., Riverbank. See the specific locations for hours.

Burchell Nursery, at 12000 Highway 120, Oakdale is an outdoor ballot drop box location, open 24 hours daily, through 8 p.m. on Sept. 14.

The recall ballot can also be returned by mail; it is postage paid and must be postmarked by Sept. 14.

The ballot itself features two questions. The first asks whether Governor Gavin Newsom should be recalled; the second asks if he is recalled, who do you want to replace him.

If 50 percent or more of the voters vote ‘no’ on the ballot, the governor will remain in office.

If more than 50 percent vote ‘yes’ in the election, the governor will be recalled and the candidate on the ballot receiving the most votes will replace him.

Voters can choose to vote on either or both of the ballot questions.
