SAN FRANCISCO, Friday, November 2, 2018 –The Department of Elections encourages San Franciscans to take advantage of early voting opportunities at the City Hall Voting Center.

Anyone registered to vote in San Francisco can cast a ballot at the Voting Center prior to or on Election Day.  

San Franciscans who missed the October 22 deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration can also come to the Voting Center to register to vote conditionally and cast a provisional ballot.

The City Hall Voting Center will be open every day through Election Day as follows: 

  • Monday–Friday through November 5, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • This weekend, November 3–4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters who are unable, for any reason, to vote at the City Voting Center or at their polling place on Election Day can authorize anyone to pick up their ballot through Election Day at the Voting Center. Voters may use the Ballot Pick-Up Authorization Form, available from the home page of sfelections.org, or their own written authorization. The written authorization must be signed under penalty of perjury and include the voter’s name, date of birth, signature, residential address, and the name of person authorized to pick up the ballot.
