If a voter doesn’t vote in the recall his/her vote doesn’t count

for the replacement.

In other words if a freeper goes in to vote for Arrnoold and just skips the recall part his replacement vote is void.

Are the tabulation machines able to count votes in this way?


11382. No vote cast in the recall election shall be counted for any
candidate unless the voter also voted for or against the recall of
the officer sought to be recalled.

Who knew this? And what will it mean?

3. OK
That makes sense, because it would be a huge deal if it were true.

On what grounds was it overturned?

4. Overturned because you have a right to abstain on any issue
All issues on ballots are separate from your perspective as a voter even if the results of one affect the other. Not many years ago in San Diego County we had an election in which Propositions E and F contained poison-pill provisions so that each would have overridden the other if both won. It was illogical and confusing. Fortunately both lost IIRC.

5. Why would a freeper
not vote on the recall? Some of them have probably been standing outside the polling places for days to be sure to be the first in line!
