For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Monday, January 27, 2020– Voting in the March 3, 2020, Consolidated Presidential Primary Election begins on Monday, February 3 at the Voting Center in City Hall.

Between Monday, February 3, and Monday, March 2, the Voting Center on the ground floor of City Hall will be open weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Weekend voting will be available on the two weekends before the election, February 22-23 and February 29-March 1, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Election Day, Tuesday, March 3, the Voting Center will observe the same voting hours as polling places, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

"As voting for the March 3rd election begins next week, we would like to encourage voters to take advantage of the early voting period,” said Director John Arntz. “The Voting Center in City Hall is less crowded at the beginning of the early voting period and generally during mornings and mid-afternoons for the entire early voting period. One of the benefits of voting early is voters can pick a time that’s more convenient for their schedules.”

Beginning Saturday, February 29 and through Election Day, the Department will open two additional voting centers: on the San Francisco State University (SFSU) campus at 798 State Drive and at the Joseph Lee Recreation Center, located in the Bayview neighborhood at 1395 Mendell Street.

Voting centers will serve all San Francisco residents who wish to register to vote, cast a ballot, drop off a voted vote-by-mail ballot, or obtain a replacement ballot. The voting centers will also serve residents who have missed the February 18 voter registration deadline and wish to register to vote conditionally.

Anyone with questions about registration or voting is encouraged to call the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375 or write to sfvote@sfgov.org.
