Excerpt of 2021 California gubernatorial recall election in wikipedia, in italics, below:
The 2021 California gubernatorial recall election is a special election on whether or not to recall Governor Gavin Newsom from office and, if he is removed, to select a candidate to replace him for the remainder of the term, which ends in January 2023. The election follows the same pandemic-era format used in the November 2020 general election: in August, county election offices sent an official ballot to the mailing address of every registered voter for the option to vote by mail on or before election day, September 14, 2021, when polling places will be open statewide for the option to vote in-person.
Voters’ ability to recall an elected official in California is the result of Progressive Era reforms enacted in 1911 alongside the introduction of the ballot initiative and women’s suffrage. The 2003 recall election was the first time a gubernatorial recall attempt led to an election in California and resulted in the successful recall of Governor Gray Davis, who was replaced by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 2021 California recall is the fourth gubernatorial recall election to successfully make the ballot in American history, the others being the 1921 North Dakota gubernatorial recall election (which successfully recalled Lynn Frazier), the 2003 California recall, and the 2012 Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election (which failed to recall Scott Walker). California is the only U.S. state to have had two gubernatorial recall elections.
