Photos: Californians stream to polls for recall vote

The California recall election that could remove first-term Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is underway.

As of 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, more than 102,000 people had cast ballots in person at 255 voting centers throughout Los Angeles County, said Mike Sanchez, spokesman for the county’s registrar-recorder office.

Sanchez said voting has run smoothly.

“So far, so good,” he said. “All vote centers opened on time and have been serving the voters since.”
