For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Tuesday, November 22, 2022 – Today, the Department of Elections issued the 14th preliminary election results reports of votes cast in the November 8, 2022, Consolidated General Election.

Today’s preliminary results report includes 700 vote-by-mail and provisional ballots that were counted since the previous results report.  The ballots reported in today’s preliminary results report were initially challenged due to signature-related issues and subsequently cured by voters, and ballots that require manual remake (e.g., those cast by voters using ballot types containing contests in which they are not eligible to vote).

As of today, the Department has no ballots to count. If any currently challenged ballots are cured by voters, the Department will post the count of such ballots on its website.

The Department will issue the next preliminary results report at 4 p.m., Tuesday, November 29. No preliminary results reports will be issued November 23-28.

All election results reports along with the number of remaining ballots to count are available at: When releasing results, the Department posts results summary, as well as detailed reports, including the Statement of the Vote, which lists results data by precinct, district, and neighborhood, the ranked-choice voting reports (in PDF and Excel), and the Cast Vote Record, which contains raw data of votes cast in the election (in JSON).

Next week, the Department will certify San Francisco’s results of the November 8, 2022 Election.

The Department will again post images of each voted ballot cast in this election in San Francisco for public review on its website alongside election results reports. When posting the ballot images, the Department will also post the “Ballot Audit Review” application that allows members of the public to sort and view the ballot images according to specific precincts, districts, and contests. The Ballot Audit Review application includes an option to view an explanation at the bottom of each ballot image, indicating how the voting equipment interpreted and tallied each vote mark.  These explanations provide the public with information on how the voting system operates in relation to the recording and reporting of every vote cast in the election.
