SAN FRANCISCO, Wednesday, May 22, 2019 — On Wednesday, May 29, the Department of Elections will conduct the canvass of ballots cast in the Retiree Health Care Trust Fund Board (RHCTFB) election.

The canvass will take place at 8:30 a.m. in City Hall, Room 59.

The processes associated with canvassing the ballots are open to public observation in City Hall, Room 59, and will be broadcast live on the Department’s web channel, SF Elections Live, at sfelections.org/live.

As ballots are returned, staff members scan the envelopes to record receipt of each ballot. When conducting the canvass, staff will open the envelopes of the accepted ballots using a high-speed opener and remove the ballots from the envelopes. Throughout this process, the side of the envelope with the voter’s identifying information is kept face down to maintain confidentiality. Department personnel will then prepare the extracted ballots for counting. Finally, the ballots will be scanned and tabulated.

The same day, after processing all ballots, the Department of Elections will post the results of the RHCTFB election at this link: sfelections.sfgov.org/2019-retiree-health-care-trust-fund-board-election.

For more information, call the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375, write to sfvote@sfgov.org, or visit the Department’s office in City Hall, Room 48.
