tonight. ktvu political reporter greg lee lays out how soon you could be voting and why the fight over timing is inherently political. it's near certain governor gavin newsom will face a recall election this year. but the question now is when many analysts have estimated a november election, but now an earlier time line is being floated. well, that's going to be determined by a series of actions. the legislature text department of finance takes secretary states takes and they'll make that determination period full stop. that's how the governor responded when asked about this tweet from state senator steve glazer, saying newsom's best opportunity to beat the recall is an early election. here's what's next june. 8th is the last day for anyone who signed the petition to remove their name, then 30 business days for the department of finance to estimate the cost of a special election. then another 30 days for the joint legislative budget committee to review the estimate. chairwoman senator nancy skinner recently said that could be expedited our county election officials have
already indicated their costs. they've indicated it for some time now what they believe those costs to be. so we've already been at reviewing that. and that 30 days may not be necessary. after that the secretary of state will certify the signatures and the lieutenant governor must schedule a recall election between 60 to 80. days later. some estimates put it in late august early september at the earliest. both sides are saying publicly they're not concerned about timing. newsom's campaign spokesperson said. this our focus is on winning, and we'll beat the republican recall whenever the elections called. that's our approach. and guns more of rescue california one of the groups behind the recall effort, said, bring it on. we got him either way. look, 90% of politics is about timing. sonoma state political science professor dave mcewen says there's pros and cons for both sides. given the budget news, given the california rebound and recovery, what is happening is sooner is better than for gavin newsom for the governor, mcewen says a summer election would help the governor steer
clear of variables like potential power shutoffs, wild fires and the drought. however, he says democrats need to tread lightly as they move ahead if democrats push this forward too fast, there is the issue that recall proponents will use that as a talking point that look here again as a governor, where the rules don't apply. greg lee ktvu fox two news. yeah, and of area weather weekend is almost here. not too much change for tomorrow, but we are talking about a cool down in the five day and we'll have that coming up in a little bit. for now, though, let's go to ktvu jana katsuyama with a look at some of the stories that we're working on for the seven o'clock news coming up over on ktvu plus, heather new tonight, maui is making a change to its coronavirus testing policies for visitors. the announcement from hawaiian health officials and reasons for the change and also new get this a robot. really nails a manicure where you can find what's being called the world's first robo nail technician right here in
