For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Friday, May 27, 2022 – As a convenience to voters during the early voting period for the June 7, 2022 Consolidated Statewide Direct Primary Election, the Department of Elections will extend voting hours, adding weekend hours at the City Hall Voting Center. Starting this Saturday, the Voting Center will be open every day (except May 30, Memorial Day) through Election Day, June 7, as follows: 

  • Every weekday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • On weekends, 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.

“The City Hall Voting Center offers voter registration, replacement ballots, accessible voting equipment, and language assistance and is open to all San Franciscans,” said Director John Arntz. “Ballots for the June 7 election have been mailed to all locally registered voters, and those who are yet to return their ballots have several safe, secure, and reliable 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 June 7.

Any registered voter, including those who need accessibility features to mark their ballot, are out of state, or need a replacement ballot, may choose to access and mark their ballot through an online accessible vote-by-mail (AVBM) system at sfelections.org/Access. 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 track their ballots to know when the ballots are mailed, received, and processed by the Department of Elections at sfelections.org/voterportal or by signing up to receive automatic updates at wheresmyballot.sos.ca.gov.

For more information about the June 7 election, voters are encouraged to contact the Department of Elections by writing to sfvote@sfgov.org or calling (415) 554-4375.
