Residency Confirmation Postcards
Notice about Residency Confirmation Postcards
In February 2017, the Department of Elections will mail Residency Confirmation Postcards to some voters, as required by California law. The postcards will be mailed to voters who have not voted in any election in the previous four years and have not updated or confirmed information in their voter registration record during that period.
Voters who receive a postcard and who continue to live in San Francisco must respond within 15 days to confirm their home address and remain on the active voter list.
Voters who do not respond will be placed on the “inactive voter” list. “Inactive” voters are still registered and eligible to vote, but the Department does not mail election materials to them.
For more information about this notice, contact the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375, write to sfvote [at] sfgov.org, or visit the Department’s office in City Hall, Room 48.
