SF’s record-high number of voters continues to increase

The total number of San Francisco voters who cast ballots in the Nov. 8 election continues to increase past the previous record set in the November 2008 election, according to city officials.

As of Wednesday, the 19th preliminary election results report issued by the Department of Elections following the historic Nov. 8 election, there were 414,516 voters with ballots counted. That passes the record set in the November 2008 Consolidated General Election, in which 388,112 residents cast ballots.

The elections department has finished reviewing ballots, though the department will process any ballot cards found during its canvass of polling places.

The elections department planned to work Saturday in City Hall and at the department’s warehouse on Pier 48 to retrieve ballot cards associated with the manual tallying of ballots from 1 percent of the precincts used for this election.

The next report issued by the elections department, expected at 4 p.m. Monday, will include the remaining votes cast for write-in candidates.
