SAN FRANCISCO, Monday, March 4, 2024 – Between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, March 5, the Department of Elections will offer voting and ballot drop-off services at 501 polling places across San Francisco.

“In every election, we partner with many public and private entities as well as individuals to secure sites like schools, firehouses, garages, community centers, and businesses for the hosting of voting activities. On Election Morning, 501 sites will be open throughout the City, offering residents easy and convenient access to voting in person or dropping off their ballots close to home,” said Director John Arntz. “At every polling place, any voter can return their mail ballot, mark and cast a poll ballot, receive language or personal voting assistance, or use accessible equipment and tools.”

Each polling place provides ballots that list the contests in which residents of that precinct are eligible to participate. While any local voter can cast a provisional ballot at any local polling place, the Department can only count ballot selections for contests corresponding to a voter’s residential address. Therefore, any local voter who plans to vote in person on March 5 is encouraged to check their assigned polling place using any of the following methods:

Earlier this month, the Department mailed multilingual notices to voters whose polling places have changed since the last election. On Election Day, the Department will also post multilingual signs at all former polling place sites. These signs will identify the address of the new in-person voting site in multiple languages as well as a QR location code.
