For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Thursday, February 3, 2022 – As a convenience to voters during the early voting period for the February 15, 2022, Consolidated Special Municipal Election, the Department of Elections will extend voting hours, adding weekend hours at the City Hall Voting Center. Starting this Saturday, February 5, the Voting Center will be open every day through Election Day, Tuesday, February 15 as follows: 

  • Every weekday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • On weekends, February 5-6 and February 12-13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • On Election Day (Tuesday, February 15), from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“The City Hall Voting Center is open to all San Franciscans who wish to register to vote or update their registration and vote on the same day, vote using an accessible ballot-marking device, receive voting assistance in their preferred language, or get a replacement ballot,” said Director John Arntz. “Ballots for the February 15 election have been mailed to all locally registered voters, and those who are yet to return their ballots have several options to do so. Voters may mail in their voted ballots or bring them to the City Hall Voting Center or one of the official ballot drop boxes in the City.”

Locations and a map of ballot drop boxes in San Francisco can be viewed at sfelections.org/ballotdropoff. Ballot boxes are open 24 hours a day between now and the close of polls (8 p.m.) on February 15.

Any registered voter can choose to access and mark their ballot through the accessible vote-by-mail (AVBM) system at sfelections.org/Access. Non-citizen residents registered to vote in the Board of Education Recall contests can access their ballot at sfelections.org/NCVAccess. After marking an AVBM ballot, a voter must print out their ballot, place it in the envelope, and return the ballot envelope to the Department of Elections. 

Voters can use a tracking system to follow their ballots from the moment the ballot is mailed to them to the moment it’s received and counted. Voters can sign up at wheresmyballot.sos.ca.gov and specify how they would like to receive automatic updates — by text, email or voice message. Locally registered voters can also track their vote-by-mail ballots at sfelections.org/voterportal.

For more information about the February 15 election, voters are encouraged to contact the Department of Elections by writing to sfvote@sfgov.org or calling (415) 554-4375.
