Recall Cam comes to an end, center prepares to shut down

It turns out last Thursday (March 22) was the last day for the recall webcam.

Our partners at, who provided the streaming video of operations at the Recall Processing Center for free, needed their server for an event on Friday. We were going to set it back up on Tuesday morning, but since operations will be winding down on Wednesday, it did not make sense to start everything back up again just to shut it down the next day. Today is the last day for temporary staff, and Wednesday will be the last day for G.A.B. staff.

Thank you to:

  • Everyone who watched the recall webcam during its two-month run and kept an eye on their government.
  • Anton Kapela at, who set up the webcam and provided the service at no cost to taxpayers.
  • All the temporary staffers who worked so hard on this tedious but important project with the world looking over their shoulders.

The next step in the process is the Government Accountability Board's special meeting at 9 a.m. Friday, March 30, when the Board will decide whether the recall elections for the Governor and Lt. Governor will go forward. Their decision on the sufficiency of the recall petitions (whether there are at least 540,208 valid signatures) will be based on the work done at the Recall Processing Center.

The Board's meeting will be carried live on The agenda and Board materials will be posted here the day before the meeting.
