Los Angeles County’s district attorney may face a vote in November -- two years before his term ends -- as the campaign to recall him said it submitted enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.

The group rallying to recall George Gascón turned in 717,000 signatures to the county elections office by Wednesday’s deadline, surpassing the 566,857 signatures required, or 10% of registered voters. The signatures still need to be verified.
