Selection of Letters for the Local Ballot Measures to be Submitted to the Voters in the November 8, 2022 Consolidated General Election

Department of Elections
City and County of San Francisco
John Arntz, Director

For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Friday, August 12, 2022 – On Monday, August 15, at 11 a.m., the Department of Elections will select and assign a letter to identify each local measure that will appear on the ballot for the November 8, 2022 Consolidated General Election.

The selection of letters will take place at the Department of Elections, City Hall, Room 48. To facilitate public observation without having to visit the Department’s office, the Department will stream the selection of letters and post a recording of the process on sfelections.org/observe.  

.The local measures will appear on the ballot after the state measures, in the following order:

  1. Charter amendments
  2. Ordinances

Local election law sets the procedure for assigning letters to local ballot measures. Since several Charter amendments and ordinances have qualified for the ballot, the Department of Elections will select the letter designation for each measure by lottery among all measures within each category. However, a limited exception to this process applies for this election. When ballot measures concern the same subject matter, the first of these related measures is assigned a letter designation and the second related measure is assigned the next letter of the alphabet and removed from the lottery.

After the selection of letters, the Department will update the Qualified Local Measures page of sfelections.org and display the letter designation next to each local measure.  

Further information about the November 8, 2022 Consolidated General Election is available at sfelections.org or by contacting the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375.
