vote_lede_template.jpgNot to generalize, but I suspect you’ll agree with me when I say that a marker of many San Franciscans is their passion for politics. Harnessing the power of that, and in anticipation of the June 5th Consolidated Primary Presidential Election, is SF’s Department of Elections Open House this Thursday, May 17th from 2pm to 5pm.

Tour the Department of Elections behind the scenes where the “magic” unfolds, learn about the election process as well as rules and regulations, information about Election Day activities, and even the “journey of the ballot”.

There will be educational resources galore, including a map of SF’s voting precincts as well as copies of the Voter Information Pamphlet.

Interested in not just learning about the process but making it happen? Sign up to be an observer of the poll worker training class, which runs from 2:30pm to 4:30pm that day in room 34.

For more information, to RSVP, or to make an appointment for the Department of Elections’ poll worker training class, call (415) 554-4375.

What: The Department of Election’s Open House
