Early Voting Is Underway! How You Can Vote Right Now In The 2020 Election

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

We’ve been waiting four years for this, and the time has arrived! The 2020 Elections is now officially underway, as San Francisco started in-person early voting on Monday. You can now officially vote today, tomorrow, or any weekday up until Election Day, November 3. Once you get your mail-in ballot, you can take that baby down to a San Francisco Voting Center and vote when you want.

Before you vote, check out the Broke-Ass Stuart Voter Guide for guidance on the many candidates and measures on your ballot. If you’re nervous that they might somehow screw up your ballot, we also have this handy explainer on how to make sure your ballot gets counted with information on how to check yo/ur voter registration, and checking the status of your mail-in ballot.


If you’re worried that the trouble at the Postal Service might delay your ballot, the San Francisco Voting Center at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is already open! It opened on Monday, October 5, and is open every day, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.  

Starting Saturday, October 31, you can also drop off your ballot at these pop-up voting centers.

If you do mail your ballot and you want to make sure, there’s a California online ballot tracker so you can see whether it’s been counted yet.

Of course, you can also still vote in person on November 3 like a normal year. Your ballot has to be in by 8 p.m. on November 3. Let’s do this!
