California voters head to the polls Tuesday in a crucial gubernatorial recall election.

The recall election centers on Governor Gavin Newsom’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Polling places are expecting to see high turnout, with differing policies between Newsom and challenger Larry Elder.

There is a lot at stake, as Elder plans to reverse many of the state’s current coronavirus policies.

This is just the fourth recall election for a governor in U.S. history, but it’s the second to happen in California.

In-person voting is Tuesday, but mail-in voting started nine days ago.

All registered voters in the state were mailed ballots last month, which will be accepted until a week from Tuesday.
