City offers numerous languages, methods for voting in election

San Francisco voters have numerous ways to cast their votes in Tuesday’s election, which will determine the fate of 11 propositions as well as the posts of mayor, sheriff and others, according to the city’s Department of Elections.

Residents can vote at the City Hall Voting Center on the ground floor of the building, where voters can choose to vote using a paper ballot, a touchscreen ballot or even an audio ballot. The ballot formats are all available in English, Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino.

Vietnamese, Japanese, and Korean language needs are also accommodated.

The City Hall Voting Center will be open through Tuesday for voting. Weekday hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Election Day hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The public must enter City Hall on Grove Street during the weekend.

Voters who do not plan to vote at City Hall should vote on Election Day at their assigned polling places between 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

By voting at the assigned voting place, voters will have ballots that include all candidates and propositions for which they are eligible to vote, based on their residential addresses.

Voters can check the address of their polling place on the front cover of their voter information pamphlet, by visiting sfelections.org/pollsite or by calling (415) 554-4375.

Additionally, voters can bring their signed and sealed vote-by-mail ballots to the Department of Elections’ ballot drop-off stations outside City Hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, or on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Vote-by-mail ballots can also be dropped off at any polling place on Election Day.

Vote-by-mail ballots must, by law, be postmarked before or on Election Day and be received by the Department of Elections no later than Nov. 6.
