Citizens of Bernalwood, today is the day to strap on your democracy and get thee to a polling place. It’s Primary Election Day, 2016!
Here’s some last-minute guidance from your San Francisco Department of Elections:
All San Francisco polling places citywide are open for voters from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
San Franciscans can confirm the location of their polling place at sfelections.org/pollsite or by calling (415) 554-4375.
Voters may also vote at the City Hall Voting Center. Located on the ground floor of City Hall, the Voting Center is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Vote-by-mail voters may drop off their ballots from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at any polling place in San Francisco, at the Department’s Ballot Drop-off Stations outside two City Hall entrances–the main entrance at Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place (Polk Street) and the Grove Street entrance– or at the Department’s office.
Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked with today’s date and received by the Department of Elections no later than Friday, June 10.
Got that? Good!
Happily, voter-participation in Bernal Heights is usually rather high, and if Neighbor Tom’s experience this morning is any indication, that trend is set to continue this year:
