Karl Snyder: Voter turnout key to avoiding recall

Democrats enjoy a huge two-to-one advantage in registered voters in California. We currently have a governor who provides a steady hand in guiding us through a booming economy with billions of surplus dollars.

Newsom’s leadership in combatting the pandemic looks good, especially compared with governors in Republican Party-controlled states in the South.

We can cast a vote anytime through Sept. 14. Nevada County has many ways to cast your ballot. Let’s not blow it.
