Early voting begins Tuesday at City Hall

With Election Day around the corner, early San Francisco voters can begin casting their ballots at City Hall on Tuesday.

Poll workers at City Hall will collect ballots from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays beginning Tuesday and on two weekends ahead of the Nov. 5 election, according to the Department of Elections.

Five supervisor seats and a number of ballot initiatives, including the controversial Proposition C, are up for a vote.

The election will determine who serves as supervisor in districts 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, which roughly include the Marina, Sunset, Western Addition, Castro and Bayview, respectively.

Also at stake are seats on the Board of Education, City College of San Francisco Board of Trustees and BART Board.

Of the five measures on the ballot, Prop. C is perhaps the most contentious. The initiative would tax the largest businesses in The City and generate an estimated $300 million a year to be used for homeless services.

While the measure has the support local homeless nonprofits, Mayor London Breed came out against Prop. C last week, citing concerns over how the money would be spent and the impact the measure would have on jobs.

For those who prefer to vote by mail, the Department of Elections has begun sending out ballots and will receive them through the next month as long as they are postmarked on or before Election Day.
