California voters will be asked whether they want to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom from office. If the recall is approved, there are more than 40 candidates vying to replace him, and selection from these candidates is the second question on the recall ballot. These ballots should be arriving in San Francisco voters’ mailboxes around Aug. 16. They can then be mailed in or returned in person. In an interview with “Civic,” Evangelina Peña, co-manager of the outreach division at the San Francisco Department of Elections, walked voters through the steps, from ensuring they receive a ballot to filling it out to tracking its processing status online.
