BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A lot of people were seen in Butte County on Tuesday heading to drop off their ballots or to vote in person.

Car after car pulled up to the ballot drop-off box today to turn in their ballots for the recall election at places like the Butte County Library, Department of Employment and Social Services, and the Chico Masonic Center.

A couple of people shared why they are for or against the governor recalled.

“It is very important for me to come and vote no on the recall because it is expensive and useless, and I live between two counties. Orange and Butte and I had to get back here because my ballot is in Butte, so I flew home last night and I just mailed my ballot,” Butte County resident Nacy Leverette said.

“Newsom is ruining our state,” Butte County resident Jacob Maier said. “He is a career politician; he doesn’t get anything done. Our state is in shambles. We need new policies. Vote Larry Elder.”

“They never really gave me a reason why we should recall him I asked everybody I knew that wanted to recall him and their points were bad,” Butte County resident Raymi Robinson said.

Butte County mailed out over 127,000 votes and it's accepted back 36,000 of them.

The Butte County elections office said these ballot drop boxes in Butte County will be sealed by 8 p.m.
