New Voting District Lines in 2022


As you prepare to vote in the November 8, 2022 Consolidated General Election, please be aware that one or more of your voting districts and/or your precinct may have changed since the last time you voted, as a result of recent redistricting. Redistricting is the process that occurs every decade, during which state and local redistricting committees use federal Census data to draw new voting district maps in order to maintain equal numbers of people in each voting district.

The City’s new federal and state voting district maps went into effect in the June 7, 2022 Election and its new Supervisorial and BART district maps will go into effect in the November 8, 2022 Election.

Your home address determines in which voting districts you live, and the contests and candidates you will see on your ballot. If your voting districts have changed, you may see different contests and candidates on your ballot than previously.

In early October, every local voter will automatically receive a vote-by-mail ballot packet for the November 8 Election. The ballot will include contests to fill a number of federal, state, and local offices as well as several local and state ballot measures. Only ballots for voters living in even-numbered, i.e., 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, Supervisorial Districts will include a contest to elect a member of the Board of Supervisors. Voters living in odd-numbered, i.e., 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11, Districts will elect their Supervisors in 2024.

As required by state law, the Department of Elections had to adjust the boundary lines of San Francisco’s voting precincts to conform to newly-drawn representative district boundaries. As a result of this process, many voters will have new precincts and new assigned polling places in the November 8 Election.

The Department of Elections encourages all voters to familiarize themselves with the redistricting changes by comparing their “old” 2011 voting districts to their “new” 2022 voting districts, using a tool at; reviewing the resources on this page; and referring to the Department’s official notices on this subject, including the posters, flyers, newspaper, radio, and TV ads that will be distributed throughout the City in the upcoming months.

Review Frequently Asked Questions on Redistricting

  1. Which voting district boundaries have changed?
    Voting districts in San Francisco include its Board of Equalization, State Senate, State Assembly, U.S. Congressional, BART Board of Directors, and Supervisorial Districts. While the City’s Board of Equalization and State Senate District maps did not change in 2022, its State Assembly, U.S. Congressional, BART Board, and Supervisorial District maps did.
  2. When will the new voting district maps be in effect?
    San Francisco will begin using the new State Assembly and U.S. Congressional District maps beginning with the June 7, 2022, Consolidated Statewide Direct Primary Election and will begin using the new BART and local Supervisorial District maps beginning with the November 8, 2022, Consolidated General Election.
  3. Who made changes to voting district maps?
    Following the release of 2020 Census data, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission redrew San Francisco’s federal and state voting district maps, the local Redistricting Task Force redrew the City’s Supervisorial District maps, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Board of Directors redrew BART’s voting district maps.
  4. How will redistricting and reprecincting changes affect me as a voter?
    Since the combination of voting districts in which you live determines the candidates and contests on your ballot, the candidates you were expecting to see on your November 8 ballot may be different or absent entirely. In addition, redistricting triggered many precincts to change, so you may now have a new precinct and assigned polling place.

    Voters living in even-numbered (i.e., 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) Supervisorial Districts will elect their Supervisors in the November 8, 2022 election.
    Voters living in odd-numbered (i.e., 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11) Districts will elect their Supervisors in the November 5, 2024 election.
