Voters were asked two questions: Should Newsom be removed from the office, and if so, who should replace him? There were 46 names on the ballot, but much of the attention was focused on Larry Elder, the host of Republican talk radio, who was aiming to become the first black governor in California.

Overall, ABC News predicts that California has voted not to recall.
