A lot is at stake in Tuesday’s gubernatorial recall election
DAP Health Insights – Monday, Sept. 13, 2021, from David Brinkman, CEO
Vote for health
A person's health impacts whether or not they vote, and those who do vote shape the state's health care policy. This cycle can have a negative impact on marginalized communities if those with poor health vote less often than healthier citizens, which they do.
On Tuesday, Sept. 14, voters will be asked if Gov. Gavin Newsom should remain the governor of California. The recall ballot then asks voters to choose a person to replace Newsom should a majority of voters decide to replace him.
If Newsom avoids being recalled, state policies that impact health — from housing to education — will likely stay the same. If he is recalled, state policies could change in unknown ways.
