vote_lede_template.jpgAre you tired of waiting to let your voice be heard at the ballot box? The SF Department of Elections feels your pain and wants you to come on down starting next Tuesday, October 11, for some Early Voting action.

Early Voting will run Monday-Fridays from 8am to 5pm at the Department of Elections office on the ground floor of City Hall. You can also vote there the weekends of October 29-30 and November 5-6 from 10am-4pm. On weekends, the Ex notes, the public entrance to City Hall is on the Grove Street side of the building.

Those who want to vote early but really don’t want to deal with City Hall can request vote-by-mail ballots either through the Department of Elections’ online application or by completing the application found on the back cover of the Voter Information Pamphlet you normally receive in the mail. According to the Department of Elections, all currently registered voters will be mailed the pamphlet by October 11, so watch your mailbox.

You can also send a letter to the Department of Elections at 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Pl. Room 48, 94102, with your printed name, signature, date of birth, telephone number, and address.

The Department of Elections must receive your application to vote by mail by 5pm on November 1, so don’t delay.
