Keep Your Voter Registration Current!
In every election, it is important to have accurate and current information in your voter registration record.
In this election, you also want to be sure that your registration record accurately reflects your political party preference (see here).
How to register to vote or update your registration information
You can register or update your registration information, such as your party preference, online at registertovote.ca.gov.
You can also complete a paper application. To request one, call (415) 554-4375, email SFVote [at] sfgov.org, or visit the Department of Elections office in City Hall, Room 48.
Try to register or reregister by February 18. You can register or reregister after the registration deadline at a voting center or polling place, but registering by the deadline gives you more voting options and may save you time, so the sooner the better!
If you missed the registration deadline, you can still register and vote
After February 18, voters who missed the registration deadline can visit voting centers or polling places to register conditionally and vote provisionally. This means you have an extra step of registering in person when you come to vote, and the Department of Elections must verify your eligibility before counting your ballot.
To avoid filling out an extra form and waiting again to have your ballot counted, try to register and vote as early as possible.
