SAN FRANCISCO, Friday, February 23, 2024 – The Department of Elections will offer a full range of services at its City Hall Voting Center this weekend, February 24th and 25th, as well as next weekend, March 2nd and 3rd.  Like all of San Francisco’s polling places, the City Hall Voting Center can serve voters with many different needs.

Any local voter may choose to mark and cast a paper ballot or an accessible (touchscreen or audio) ballot at the City Hall Voting Center. Any voter may request “curbside” voting service at the Voting Center by calling (415) 554-4375 or by asking a companion to request this service on their behalf. Assistance in many languages is available to any Voting Center visitor, along with official ballots and informational materials in English and either Chinese, Filipino, or Spanish and facsimile (reference) ballots in Burmese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, or Vietnamese.

Local voters unable to travel to the City Hall Voting Center can authorize another person to pick up their ballot on their behalf, by completing a Ballot Pick-up Authorization Form, available at

“For the convenience of San Francisco voters, we will open our City Hall Voting Center on the two weekends right before Election Day,” said Director John Arntz. “Elections personnel at the Voting Center can accept vote-by-mail ballot drop-offs, help eligible residents register to vote, and provide already registered voters with paper or accessible replacement ballots. Additionally, any voter may update their political party preference at the Voting Center and receive a ballot with their preferred presidential candidates.  All Voting Center services are multilingual and accessible.”
