As of Tuesday, 18,556 Calaveras County voters have cast their gubernatorial recall ballots, according to the county elections office.

Preliminary results showed 61.7% of county voters in favor of the recall, while 38.29% said 'no'.

The results mirror those of the 2020 Presidential Election, when 60.81% voted for Donald Trump and 36.98% voted for President Joe Biden. 

Turnout for that election was over 86% of local registered voters, while the failed recall election for Gov. Gavin Newsom has seen just over 57% voting. 

“This is an average turnout for Calaveras County,” Robin Glanville, Assistant Clerk-Recorder for the county, told the Enterprise on Monday. 

Larry Elder was the favorite gubernatorial replacement candidate among residents, with 61.19% of the vote.

Of the total ballots counted so far, 16,734 were returned via mail or drop box, and 1,822 were cast at voting centers.

The elections office anticipates the posting of official results by Sept. 30.
