Last call for voting by mail approaches

If you want to vote by mail, Tuesday is the very last day you can request a mail-in ballot for the Nov. 2 election. There are four simple ways to request a vote-by-mail ballot:

  • 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.

San Francisco voters can also vote in person the Department of Elections, on the ground floor of City Hall. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The department will also be open for weekend voting on Oct. 23-24 and Oct. 30-31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
