Measures

The Department of Elections is happy to assist with your ballot measure submission needs.

 

For information about state ballot measures, visit the website of the California Secretary of State.

Qualified Local and District Measures

The Director of Elections determines the title and letter designation of each measure. The title of each measure is subject to change prior to letter designation. If the Department of Elections receives more than one proposed proponent or opponent argument for a measure, the Department will select one proponent and one opponent argument according to priority levels and, if necessary, by lottery. If an argument designated by motion of the Board is not submitted, the Department will select according to the next priority level.

The Department requests permission from each measure’s proponent to make contact information available to the public. If there is no contact information for a particular measure on this page, the proponent has not authorized the Department to release this information.

*Persons who are entitled to submit the proponent or opponent argument for a particular measure may assign the right to submit the argument to another person or persons, provided that the assignee is eligible to submit an argument

Resources for Ballot Measures


The San Francisco Department of Elections has prepared a guide that summarizes the requirements and procedures for qualifying Charter Amendments, Ordinances, and Declarations of Policy for the ballot through the initiative process. This guide is intended to answer common questions about the initiative process and is not intended to be all-inclusive. This guide does not have the force and effect of law, regulation, or rule, and interested parties should not rely on this guide as a substitution for consulting an attorney. This guide applies only to initiative Charter Amendments, Ordinances, and Declarations of Policy for the City and County of San Francisco.   November 3, 2020 - Updated Guide to Qualifying San Francisco Initiative Measures (PDF)
