A Mark Fiore cartoon titled, "The Math of Recall," that shows Gavin Newsom and Larry Elder. One label points at Newsom that says, "could get 49% and lose." The label pointing to Larry Elder reads, "could get 15% and win."California's recall election is not your typical election.

KQED has produced a handy explainer on how to fill out your ballot and what to do if you make a mistake.

It is very possible that California may elect a governor whose views are very much at odds with the electorate of the state.

The leading Republican candidate is Larry Elder, who apparently loves fracking and hates the minimum wage.

He is also known for sporting a white bathrobe and producing "Robe Rage" video segments for social media.

If fewer than 50% of people vote against recalling Gov. Gavin Newsom, Elder may be our next governor.
