Dear Westminster Voter,
This IMPORTANT NOTICE is being sent to inform you that in-person voting options for the Special Westminster Recall Election have been CLOSED in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to California Governor Newsom’s recent Executive Order (N-34-20), the generalized use of in-person voting may present risks to public
health and safety in light of COVID-19 and could risk undermining social distancing measures imposed by the State Public Health Officer.
