Abstract After Governor Newsom’s executive order required all non-essential workers to stay home (“Stay at Home Order” of March 19), the California Republican Party (CAGOP) sought declaratory judgment as to whether ballot harvesters are to be considered "essential employees" within the meaning of the order. CAGOP noted that public statements by Newsom and other public officials on this matter appeared to contradict each other, and that ballot harvesters – if found in violation – might be subjected to criminal penalties. CAGOP sought either an order and judgment declaring that ballot-harvesting was not an essential activity, or alternatively, an order and judgment declaring that it was not.
