In an email from Robbie Anderson with the Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento to Orrin Heatlie, the Lead Proponent of RecallGavin2020:

“Today our efforts to Recall California Governor Gavin Newsom have entered a dramatic new phase, and we cannot be prouder of everyone who is working tirelessly to remove America’s worst governor from office,” Heatlie said.

“The campaign is full speed ahead. To date, our amazing team of volunteers have gathered about 800,000 signatures from California voters throughout the state.

The news you have all been waiting for, Did we get the extension?  The answer is YES we did The Judge made a preliminary ruling and the SOS has confirmed it is not requesting an oral argument.  The hearing for 11:00 has been cancelled.   In short the RecallGavin2020 campaign has officially been granted an extension to continue to gather signatures and the new deadline for you to submit signed petition forms to the campaign is March 10, 2021.  The deadline for the campaign to submit those forms to the registrar is March 17, 2021. That’s 120 additional days folks.  

In the first 160 days we’ve gathered nearly half of what was needed to trigger a special election to Recall Gavin Newsom.  Now, with the extension we have 120 more days  to reach our goal.

While we declare victory in this battle, we have not won the war and there is much work that needs to be done.

Critical Update October, 24th

Critical UPDATE: from Lead Proponent Orrin Heatlie and the RecallGavin2020 team (October 23, 2020):

The RecallGavin2020 legal team, (the Benbrook Law Firm) has filed for an extension to continue gathering signatures.  The hearing date is Nov. 6th at 11:00 a.m.  This hearing is public and will be broadcast on the following link:

Since its conception, the RecallGavin2020 team has been working hard to do everything in our power to help you make this recall a success.  As you may know, this is a monumental and historical movement. This is the largest petition drive ever attempted in the United States history.  It was timed to take advantage of the warm summer months, festivals, carnivals, county fairs, 4th of July events, concerts in the park and other gatherings where people come together in mass. What happened next?  Governor Gavin Newsom shut down California and closed us out.  We can’t even sing in church and now he wants to limit our family gatherings.

People are suffering.  The shutdown has taken a toll on the entire population.  People have been afraid to interact with one another.  Californians are struggling.  Signing a petition and making a donation to a political cause has not been top priority on their list.

STILL, the RecallGavin2020 volunteer army has done an amazing job.  Without the help of contract circulators, they have managed to gather a third of the petitions necessary to qualify for a special election.  The people engaged in this recall are a force to be reckoned with.

We all know a lot hinges on this hearing.  We simply need more time.  Earlier this year the courts granted extensions to other initiatives circulating petitions and the attorney general posed no objection.  In fact, quite the opposite. That said, the Court has set precedence and our legal team is confident we will prevail.

At this critical juncture funding is vital.  We need your help once again.  This is truly a battle between good and evil and we need your help to win.  We must regain control of this state and your donations are the life blood of this movement.

Please visit and donate today.  Not one of us can afford to sit this one out.

There is a lot of work to be done and not enough words to thank you for your commitment, dedication, and hard work, but we THANK YOU and praise the lord for your help!  Success is within reach and our future is in your hands.

Update:  September 25, 2020

Statewide Recall efforts have grown considerably.  Signature counts continue to break internal records daily and more mail keeps pouring into our mail room.  Due to the amount of mail we are receiving, we have opened a second mailroom to handle the additional volume.

Take Note, the secretary of state website does not reflect the number of signatures we have received.  This is because all petitions are currently being sent to a third party vendor for validation and safe keeping. Although we are making great strides, the game is not over.  We need everybody who is willing and able to help us gather more signatures, time is ticking. please SIGN, CIRCULATE AND DONATE:

The CA GOP has officially endorsed this recall effort.  Earlier in the week Guest speakers CA GOP Chairwoman Jessica Patterson, along with Darrell Issa joined Lead proponents Mike Netter and Orrin Heatlie on the weekly recall town hall. You can view a recording of the town hall at this link: VIDEOS | RECALL GAVIN  If you would like to join into our town hall, please enter your email on our website here, under the stay connected tab, so we can send you a reminder with the link to join the meeting.

The Libertarian Party has also endorsed this recall effort.  Members of the Libertarian Executive Committee will be guest speakers on next weeks town hall.  Sign up to the website to stay informed and up to date on current recall events.
Click here is the latest coverage from OANN on the recall effort

Update: August 3, 2020

We are working towards our objective of 2 million signatures and we are getting closer to our goal!
We’ve hired a third-party vendor to verify signatures and hold the signed petitions for safe keeping in light of many registrar’s offices being closed to the public; some are not even accepting signed petitions, except by mail.  This is not acceptable, and we are working on a solution. We will not be making the regularly scheduled signed petition deliveries with the registrar until this is resolved. We will be updating our preliminary count once the professionals have completed the process.
The volunteer coalition has grown from 50,000 members at the start of this recall in June to over 105,000 volunteer members today.  If each of those members were to gather just 20 signatures, this recall will qualify for a special election to be held.
Your donations are critical to the success of this movement.  Every bit helps.  Whether large or small, please donate today if you can afford to do so.
Please sign, circulate, and donate!  If you live in California or have business or family here, you cannot afford to sit this one out.
