The election fraud stuff is completely bogus. It's meant to confuse and confound legitimate voting. The most important thing for this election is to VOTE! This particular election is especially important: the recall is an attempted power grab by a party that legitimately lost the last election, and is using the state's recall system to try to gain power through the back door. They don't want to wait for the next legitimate gubernatorial election (next year!) because they know they would lose, and it's entirely possible with a field of 4-+ candidates that someone will gain the office with 20% of the vote. Whether you like Newsom or not, he was elected fair and square, and while you may not be happy with all that he has done, nothing he's done deserves recalling him. If you don't like the job he has done, you have a chance every 4 years to change this.
