For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Wednesday, October 26, 2022 – The Department of Elections will offer voting services at its City Hall Voting Center this weekend, October 29th and 30th, as well as next weekend, November 5th and 6th.

“For the convenience of San Francisco voters, we will open our City Hall Voting Center on the two weekends before Election Day,” said Director John Arntz. “Elections personnel at the Voting Center can help any local voter register, receive and cast a paper or accessible ballot, drop off a vote-by-mail ballot, or receive a replacement ballot. All services are multilingual and fully accessible.”

Like all of San Francisco’s polling places, the City Hall Voting Center can serve voters with many different needs. Any voter may choose to mark and cast a paper ballot or an accessible (touchscreen or audio) ballot at the Voting Center. Any voter may request “curbside” voting service at the Voting Center by calling (415) 554-4375 or by asking a companion to request this service on their behalf. Assistance in many languages is available to any Voting Center visitor, along with official ballots and informational materials in English and either Chinese, Filipino, or Spanish, and facsimile (reference) ballots in Burmese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese.

Everyone visiting the City Hall Voting Center is invited to stop by one of several photo stations to take a photo with a giant-sized image of the iconic “I Voted” sticker. Visitors are also invited to stop by one of several resource tables to sign up to serve as a poll worker on Election Day or to pick up an election-related coloring and activity book for their kids. Resource tables also offer a “Wheel of Voting” game – this is a simple, fun activity designed for anyone to test their knowledge of local election processes.

Starting this Saturday, the City Hall Voting Center will be open every day through Election Day, as follows: 

  • Every weekday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Weekends, October 29-30 and November 5-6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • On Election Day (Tuesday, November 8), from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Whenever the City Hall Voting Center is open, the Department’s phone bank, (415) 554-4375 TTY: (415) 554-4386   will also be open, with operators available to provide assistance in many languages. Voters may also request assistance by sending email to
