Mail-in ballot requests due by day’s end

Voters have only hours left to obtain mail-in ballots for the Nov. 8 election.

The mail-in ballot requests are due to The City’s Department of Elections by 5 p.m. A press release from the department said the requests must be in the hands of elections workers today, and postmarks before the deadline will not count.

Voters can also apply online at the department’s website: http://sfelections.org/vbm/. Requests by fax can be sent to (415) 554-4272 and require a printed name, signature, date of birth, phone number, residential address and mailing address.

Early voting on the ground floor of City Hall will remain available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. On Election Day, the City Hall voting station will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., along with polling places across San Francisco.

Voters who choose to mail their ballots should allow time for delivery, because the deadline to receive all ballots is 8 p.m. on Nov. 8. Postmarks are also irrelevant in the case of that deadline.

Voters unable to return ballots due to illness or disability can designate a family member or member of the same household to drop it off, if both parties sign the back of the return envelope.
