California: LA District Attorney recall verification going to a full count

In an unsurprisingly development, the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk has found that the random sampling method did not get a clear decision on the Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon recall effort and will be going to a full count. Petitioners handed in 715,833 signatures. The sample was 5% (35,793) and 27,983 were found valid. If this verification rate kept up, the signatures would just fail (by about 7000 signatures, though that may not keep up.

Here's my look at the signature rates and how this sample method works. Here's a good article on the verification process itself.
