For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Monday, October 18, 2021 – Today, the San Francisco Department of Elections certified three petitions that seek the recall of San Francisco Board of Education members Alison Collins, Gabriela López, and Faauuga Moliga. 

The Department also set February 15, 2022, as the date for the special municipal election for voters to determine whether to recall the Board of Education members.  San Francisco Charter section 14.103(b) requires the Director of Elections to call a special municipal election upon certifying that recall petitions have sufficient numbers of valid signers. 

The City will also consolidate the Assessor-Recorder’s Office into the special municipal election.  The Charter requires local offices to appear at the next scheduled election occurring at least 120 days after the date of the vacancy. 

Since the San Francisco Municipal Elections Code defines recall elections as local measures, the Department will organize Ballot Simplification Committee meetings in November.  The Department will accept paid arguments for and against the recall measures that will be printed in the Voter Information Pamphlet.  The deadline to submit paid arguments is Monday, November 29, 2021.
