While it feels like the entire country (and perhaps the world) is looking ahead to the 2020 election, there’s one happening here in San Francisco this Tuesday, November 5. Want more info on how and where to vote? The League of Pissed Off Voters have some handy info on their website that I’ve copied below:
Where’s your polling place? See YourFuckingPollingPlace.com, call 311, or just go vote at City Hall.
Non-citizens Can Vote on Board of Education! Parents/caregivers of school-age children can vote.
Don’t have an address? You can vote! If you don’t have a fixed address, you can register using cross streets.
Former Felons Can Vote! Even if you’ve been convicted of a felony, you can vote as long as you’re off parole. Don’t let the Man disenfranchise you
Slackers Can Vote: Election Day Voter Registration! Missed the 10/21 deadline to register to vote? Head directly to City Hall—DO NOT PASS GO—to register and vote right up through Election Day! From November 2-5, you can also register and vote at SFSU Towers Conference Center. Now get out there and make us proud.
Youth Can Vote! If you’re 16 or 17, pre-register and your registration will be activated automatically when you turn 18.
San Francisco is expanding the number of options on our ranked-choice ballots this year. We can rank up to TEN candidates! The Department of Elections has a nifty online practice ballot to help folks figure it out.http://www.theleaguesf.org/nov_2019#top
While my main goal is just to get everyone to vote, I’ve also included two of my go-to voter guides below. First is the Bernal Democratic Club’s guide:
Luckily for me and my leftist tendencies, both crews have roughly the same endorsements so filling out the ballot was a breeze. Hope to see you all at the polling stations on Tuesday as I drop off my ballot and snag one of those nifty “Yo Voté” stickers.
