  • Apply online at the Department of Elections website.
  • Complete and mail the application found on the back cover of the Voter Information Pamphlet.
  • Write the Department of Elections a letter or postcard. Be sure to include your printed name and signature, date of birth, telephone number, residential address, and a mailing address, if different from your residence.
  • Send a request by fax to (415) 554-4372. Be sure to include your printed name and signature, date of birth, telephone number, residential address, and a mailing address, if different from your residence.

All completed vote-by-mail ballot requests must be received by the department by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26. Postmarks will not count.
