    Under Lt. Gov. Bustamante's proclamation, voters will have the opportunity to decide whether Davis shall be recalled...and if so who will replace him. If over 50% of voters vote to recall Davis, the new Governor will be the candidate drawing the largest number of votes.

    The historic proclamation text is as follows:


    I, CRUZ M. BUSTAMANTE, Lieutenant Governor of the State of California, by the power and authority vested in me by Sections 15 and 17, Article II of the Constitution of the State of California, do hereby proclaim and order that a special statewide election shall be held on the 7th day of October, 2003, to determine whether Gray Davis, Governor of the State of California, shall be recalled, and if the majority vote on the question is to recall, to elect a successor.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I hereunto set my hand and have caused the Great Seal of the State of California to be affixed on this 24th day of July, of the Year Two Thousand and Three.

    CRUZ M. BUSTAMANTE Lieutenant Governor of California

    KEVIN SHELLEY Secretary of State

    In releasing the proclamation today, Lt. Gov. Bustamante said, "I have consulted with the offices of the Secretary of State, the Attorney General and the Legislative Council in selecting the date and the language in this historic proclamation"
