For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Wednesday, June 22, 2022 – Today, the San Francisco Department of Elections certified San Francisco’s results of the June 7, 2022, Consolidated Statewide Direct Primary Election.

The final turnout is 46.37%, representing votes cast by 229,760 of San Francisco’s 495,498 registered voters.  This final turnout is based on the number of voters who cast Ballot Card 3, listing City propositions, and is included in the Statement of the Results.

The Statement of the Vote, June 7, 2022 Election Results – Summary, as well as other results reports indicate that the turnout is 46.26%, with 229,229 of registered voters casting their ballots. This turnout is based on the number of voters who cast Ballot Card 1, listing federal and state contests.

(When casting their ballots, voters may choose to cast all ballot cards or the selected ones. The June 7 election ballot consisted of three ballot cards).

In this election, 531 more voters cast Ballot Card 3 as compared to those who chose to cast Card 1. However, the voting system reports turnout according to Card 1, since this Card usually is the most voted when elections require multi-card ballots.  Consequently, the reason for the difference between the Statement of the Results and other results reports is 531 additional Card 3s were cast as compared to the number of cast Card 1s.  However, all votes are accounted for and reported accurately in all results reports

The Department’s website provides summary and detailed reports of election results of votes cast in San Francisco: sfelections.org/results

The California Secretary of State’s website provides results reports of the cumulative votes cast in state and federal contests: electionresults.sos.ca.gov.

The Department will again post images of all voted ballot cards cast in this election in San Francisco for public review on its website alongside election results reports. The images are saved in files according to Supervisorial Districts due to their size.  The images include an explanation of how the voting system recorded each vote-marking and the disposition for any images that required manual review.
