For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Tuesday, May 3, 2022 – In-person voting in the June 7, 2022 Consolidated Statewide Direct Primary Election begins on Monday, May 9 at the Voting Center in City Hall.

Between Monday, May 9 and Monday, June 6, the Voting Center on the ground floor of City Hall will be open weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except May 30th holiday). The Voting Center will also be open on the two weekends before the election, May 28-29 and June 4-5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Election Day, Tuesday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“All eligible San Francisco residents may visit the Voting Center to register to vote, update their registration information, use accessible voting equipment, or return their mailed ballots,” said Director John Arntz. “Later this week, the Department expects to deliver nearly 500,000 vote-by-mail ballot packets to the United States Postal Service for distribution to all currently registered voters in San Francisco. San Francisco will begin using the new State Assembly and U.S. Congressional District maps beginning with the June 7 Election; that means some voters will see different representatives running in those elected offices on the June 7 ballot.”

To help voters check their current voting districts and learn if any of their voting districts have changed as a result of recent state and local redistricting, the Department has launched a new online tool, available from the Department’s homepage and at: sfelections.org/myvotingdistrict.

The Department of Elections has begun providing Voter Information Pamphlets to all locally registered voters and expects to complete these mail and email deliveries by the end of the week. Inside the Voter Information Pamphlet, voters will find a sample ballot, information about candidates, local measures, new voting district lines, and voting options, and an invitation to serve their communities as a poll worker. On the back cover of the pamphlet, voters will find the address of their assigned polling place.

Voters may also access the pamphlet online by clicking “I WANT TO …Read my voter pamphlet” on the homepage of sfelections.org. Currently the pamphlet is posted in PDF, HTML, and XML formats, with an audio MP3 format following shortly.

The Department of Elections also offers the pamphlet in accessible formats, including large print and audio on USB flash drive, National Library Service (NLC) cartridge, or compact disc (CD). Voters may request one of these formats by calling (415) 554-4375, TTY (415) 554-4386, or emailing sfvote@sfelections.org.

All voters receive a pamphlet in English. Those who have requested election materials in Chinese, Spanish, or Filipino will also receive a copy in their preferred language. Voters may request translated election materials when registering to vote or any time at sfelections.org/language or by calling (415) 554-4375

Further information about the June 7 election is available at sfelections.org or by contacting the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375.
