The campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom nearly has enough valid signatures — but has not yet passed the threshold — to get the recall on the ballot, according to the California Secretary of State report released Friday. Overall, 1,188,073 valid signatures were collected across all 58 California counties, the office said on Friday. The recall needs 1,495,709 valid signatures that were turned in by March 17 to make the ballot — or 12% of the 12,464,235 votes cast in the previous gubernatorial election. Each county registrar still has until April 29 to verify all signatures. The secretary of state’s office will also release a document showing the total of all signatures collected.
