Start casting votes as soon as Monday

Voters can start casting ballots for the Nov. 2 election on Monday on the ground floor of City Hall starting at 8 a.m., Monday through Friday. Weekend voting will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the two weekends before the election – Oct. 23-24 and Oct. 30-31. For weekend access to City Hall, the public must enter on Grove Street.

The Department of Elections has also started sending out the vote-by-mail ballots along with voter information pamphlets with details about local candidates and the voting process.

Voters can request a vote-by-mail ballot in the following ways:

– Use the Department of Elections’ online application, available at www.sfelections.org.

– Complete the application found on the back of the Voter Information Pamphlet.

– Send a letter to the Department of Elections that includes the voter’s printed name, signature, date of birth, telephone number, residential address and mailing address, if different from the residential address.

The department must receive completed vote-by-mail ballot applications no later than Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 5 p.m.

Oh, and don’t forget to make sure you received the correct ballot.
