Multilingual Voter Services
For almost 40 years, in compliance with state and federal language access laws, the Department has provided materials and assistance in Chinese and Spanish, as well as in English. In 2015, in compliance with the City’s Language Access Ordinance, the Department expanded its services to provide translated materials and assistance in Filipino. The Department continues to prioritize its multilingual program and to improve upon its services to all voters, including those with limited proficiency in English.
Multilingual voter services include:
• Voter information in English, Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino at sfelections.org.
• Election materials in Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino: ballots, voter registration forms, voter notices, instructional signs at all polling places, vote-by-mail ballot applications and instructions, and Voter Information Pamphlets.
• Bilingual poll worker assistance at designated polling places on Election Day.
• Telephone assistance in many languages, available during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. For assistance, call (415) 554-4375.
Each polling place and the City Hall Voting Center will also have facsimile ballots in Vietnamese, Korean,
and Japanese; these are exact copies of the official ballot with translated content, for voters to use as a reference. Copies are also available at sfelections.org/toolkit.
