Recall Special: Countdown California
Tuesday, September 7 at 6pm

A recall election of California Governor Gavin Newsom is set for Sept. 14, and mail-in ballots are already out. Though California is an overwhelmingly blue state, it's not a certainty Newsom will survive the recall. Reasons abound, including apathy and a lack of awareness that many predict could lead to a low voter turn out.  So, how did we get here? And what could a Newsom recall mean for the state? We answer those questions and more in the hour-long special "Countdown California" from KPCC in Los Angeles. We'll explain the stakes, what's on the ballot, and what could happen after the election, regardless of the outcome. Join host Austin Cross along with political observers and reporters from public radio newsrooms across California for this in-depth discussion.

Guests include: KPCC's Libby Denkmann, Calmatters' Laurel Rosenhall, strategist Mike Madrid, KQED's Marisa Lagos, Capradio's Nicole Nixon, Law prof and KCRW contributor Jessica Levinson and Zach Courser, head of Claremont Mckenna's Policy Lab, plus voter voices.

Listen Tuesday September 7 at 6pm, on-air and online at KVPR.org.
