California Recall Vote

Many Californians haven't wasted any time in casting their recall vote.

The lines grew quickly outside a Hollywood polling place, as residents statewide decide whether Governor Gray Davis should stay in office.

One poll worker says the early turnout was unusual, because it usually takes a few hours for voters to show up.

They weren't as anxious in Thousand Oaks, where GOP candidate and state Senator Tom McClintock will cast his vote later. Nobody was in line when that station opened.

The ballot runs several pages long, with the names of the 135 people bidding to take Davis' place. Voters have to answer two questions, whether Davis should be forced out, and who should replace him.

If Davis becomes the second governor in U.S. history to be recalled, polls have shown Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger is the favorite to take his place, despite recent allegations of sexual harassment in the past.
