San Francisco residents can begin voting Monday for the June 3 statewide primary election, including a local race for the Assembly and ballot measures on an earthquake safety bond and waterfront height limits.

Early voting will be held at The City’s Department of Elections office on the ground floor of City Hall on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding Memorial Day.

Weekend voting will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the two weekends before the election, May 24-25 and May 31-June 1.

Ballots will be mailed this week to voters who have registered to permanently vote by mail. Voters who wish to vote by mail can request a ballot at the Department of Elections’ website or by calling the elections department at (415) 554-4375.

Those wishing to vote by mail can also complete and send the application found on the back cover of the Voter Information Pamphlet, or send a letter to the Department of Elections requesting a vote-by-mail ballot.

The Department of Elections must receive completed vote-by-mail ballot applications no later than 5 p.m. on May 27.

A number of statewide seats are up for election this year, including governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, controller and attorney general. Two supervisors, David Campos and David Chiu, are competing for the Assembly District 17 seat. The top two vote getters, regardless of party affiliation, will advance to the November general election.

Voters in The City will also be faced with two local measures in June: a $400 million bond for earthquake safety upgrades and emergency response, and an ordinance requiring voter approval of any waterfront development that exceeds existing height limits.

More information about voting by mail, early voting, and the Voter Information Pamphlet is available at sfelections.org/toolkit, or by calling (415) 554-4375.
