For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 –The Department of Elections reminds voters that today is the deadline to request a ballot be sent by mail for the March 3, 2020, Consolidated Presidential Primary Election.

To request a ballot for mail delivery, voters may use one of the options: call the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375, submit an application online through sfelections.org/voterportal or in person at the Department’s office in City Hall, Room 48.  

“Vote-by-mail ballots are still available after February 25th but voters must make their requests in person at one of the voting centers,” said Director John Arntz. “We encourage all San Francisco residents to take advantage of early voting opportunities. The City Hall Voting Center will be open every day through Election Day, Tuesday, March 3. Beginning Saturday, February 29 and through Election Day, the Department will open two additional voting centers: on the San Francisco State University campus at 798 State Drive and at the Joseph Lee Recreation Center at 1395 Mendell Street.”

Voting centers will serve San Francisco residents who wish to register to vote but have missed the February 18 voter registration deadline. Voting centers will also serve those registrants who want to change their political party preference and obtain a ballot of that party as well as those who want to drop off their voted vote-by-mail ballots or obtain replacement ballots.

For more information about the March 3 election, visit sfelections.org or contact the Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375. The Department’s phone bank will be open this weekend, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Department personnel will also be available to respond to inquiries received through the Department’s public email, sfvote@sfgov.org, over the weekend.
