For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Friday, October 25, 2019 –The Department of Elections reminds voters that Tuesday, October 29, is the deadline to request a ballot be sent by mail for the November 5, 2019, Consolidated Municipal Election.

To request a ballot on or before October 29 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 complete and return an application found on the back cover of the Voter Information Pamphlet mailed earlier this month.

“Vote-by-mail ballots are still available after October 29th 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. Starting this Saturday, October 26, the City Hall Voting Center will be open every day through Election Day, Tuesday, November 5.  A second Voting Center located at San Francisco State University facility at 798 State Drive will open on November 2.”

Those voters who submitted requests for a vote-by-mail ballot but have not yet received their vote-by-mail ballot packets are urged to contact the Department of Elections immediately so the Department can reissue new ballots. The Department’s phone bank, (415) 554-4375, 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.
