We are less than a week away from the Governor Recall election and voters are continuing to send in their ballots.

According to statewide data, more than 6.5 million ballots have already been turned in out of 22.2 million ballots that have been sent out to voters.

KRCR took a look at Shasta County voter turnout in comparison.

County officials said Shasta County has roughly 113,000 registered voters, and they have received 26,000 ballots as of Tuesday.

For Shasta County as a whole right now, we are seeing roughly 23% return rate for ballots. This includes 32% of democratic voters turning in their ballots and a 23% return rate for Republican voters.

KRCR spoke to Shasta County Clerk Cathy Darling Allen who said they are currently training poll workers ahead of next week's election.

As they prepare for the election, she said they will be sending voting supplies to their poll workers later this week.

She explained for anyone interested in submitting their vote before election day, you can do so at the elections department in Downtown Redding every day except Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

But until next week's election, they are continuing to look for more volunteers for the polls.

"We're very close to having enough, but not really, I mean we would love to have another 50 so that we have insurance," Darling Allen said. "I mean I got a voicemail this morning for somebody who has a family member who has tested positive for Covid, so their whole family is out in quarantine, and we know that may happen again between now and Tuesday, so we are still recruiting poll workers, absolutely."

She said they will also be open this weekend on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for anyone interested in voting early.

Voters will decide whether or not to keep Gavin Newsom in the Governor's office on Tuesday, September 14.
