The California Constitution provides that all the powers of the governor fall to the lieutenant governor whenever the governor is unable to execute the office, including when the governor is not in the State of California; the lieutenant governor often signs or vetoes legislation and makes political appointments whenever the governor leaves the state.
Governors are elected by the majority vote of those voters voting within the state during an election for the office, and serve terms of four years when they prevail, with a limit of two terms.
If a governor is challenged, by any group of citizens within a state, prior to the next scheduled gubernatorial election, the state can hold a recall election to remove a governor, provided enough signatures are collected and all are verified by the election recorder's office, also each signator must be a valid registered voter.
