Voting Logistics! Make a plan for how and when you're going to vote!

Polls are open 7am-8pm.

Where’s your polling place? Look it up here, or call 311, or anyone can vote in City Hall. Or if it's 7:50pm and you can't make it to your polling place, find the nearest one and vote provisionally.

Even if you've committed a felony, you can vote as long as you’re off parole. Don’t let the Man disenfranchise you!
