The effort to recall Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom reached the requisite number of signatures to land on the ballot later this year, according to a Monday announcement from the California secretary of state’s office.

California Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber said that the threshold of verified signatures reported by counties — set at 1,495,709 — had been met. According to the latest update, 1,626,042 signatures have been submitted and verified, as Fox News reported.

“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” Weber said in a statement. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”
