THE STATE | RECALL Q&A

Could a new petition to recall the governor start circulating as soon as this recall is over?

August 24, 2003

No. Under state law, recall petitions may not circulate until the governor has been in office at least six months.

For The Record

Q&A -- A recall Q&A in Sunday's Section A incorrectly stated that new recall petitions cannot be circulated until six months after the current election. A sitting governor who survives a recall election has a six-month grace period before new petitions can be circulated. But if Gov. Gray Davis is ousted, his successor could become the subject of a recall campaign as soon as the election results are certified.
