LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A group seeking to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said on Wednesday that it has collected enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.

In a statement, the Recall DA George Gascón campaign announced it has has surpassed 566,857 signatures collected as of Tuesday, "which equates to 10% of registered voters" in the county "and is the required threshold to officially initiate a recall."
...
Organizers said their focus has now turned to collecting as many additional signatures as possible to ensure there is a necessary "cushion" to offset those that are invalidated by the county registrar of voters. The campaign's stated goal is to submit 650,000 - 700,000 total signatures or more.

The need for a "cushion" is ordinary, since some signers will not be LA County residents, some dumbasses with sign as "Mickey Mouse", etc.. The good news is that with some three weeks to go, the recall group are working to get a good cushion.
