As a San Francisco voter, you can choose to vote in the June 7 election by mail or in person at the City Hall Voting Center or at a polling place.
Vote by Mail
Vote by mail is now permanent. Per recent changes to state law, every actively registered voter will be sent a ballot with the option to return their ballot by mail, in person, or at an official ballot drop box.
Around May 9, the Department of Elections will begin sending vote-by-mail (VBM) packets, each containing an official ballot, instructions, an “I Voted!” sticker, and a postage-paid return envelope, to all locally registered voters. On May 9, the Department will also open its accessible vote-by-mail (AVBM) system, with screen readable ballots compatible with personal assistive devices, at sfelections.org/access. Any registered voter may access their ballot through the AVBM system.
Whether you use a paper or accessible ballot, you will need to complete these three steps:
Vote Early at the City Hall Voting Center
The City Hall Voting Center will be open to all San Franciscans who wish to register to vote or vote in person, use accessible voting equipment, receive personal assistance, or return their mailed ballots:
• Every weekday, starting May 9 through June 7 (except May 30, Memorial Day), from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• The last two weekends before Election Day (May 28–29 and June 4–5), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• On Election Day, Tuesday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Vote at your Assigned Polling Place on Election Day
Between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Election Day, June 7, 588 polling places will be open for in-person voting and ballot drop-off services.
Your polling place may have changed for this election! Check the address of your assigned polling place, along with accessibility information, on the back cover of this pamphlet. If your assigned polling place changes after this pamphlet has been printed, the Department of Elections will attempt to notify you via a postcard and a sign posted at your old polling place location. Prior to voting on Election Day, you may visit sfelections.org/MyVotingLocation to confirm your polling place address.
