Unofficial Results Reporting Schedule

Election Day

The Department of Elections will release the first preliminary results report at approximately 8:45 p.m. and will update the results regularly until all polling places have reported. The 8:45 p.m. report will represent results from the vote-by-mail ballots the Department received before Election Day. Beginning at approximately 9:30 p.m., the reports will include results from ballots cast at polling places. After all polling places have reported, the Department will release an updated report. For ranked-choice contests, this report will include the preliminary results after applying the ranked-choice algorithm to the total votes from the vote-by-mail and polling place ballots tabulated to this point. The Department will also post ballot image files for the ranked-choice contests on its website.

The results will be available from the following sources:

  • Department of Elections website – results will be posted on www.sfelections.org
  • San Francisco Government Television – SFGTV, Channel 26, will report results throughout the evening
  • North Light Court, City Hall – results will be displayed on a large monitor; printed copies of updates will be available at approximately 8:45p.m., 9:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m., and 11:30 p.m.
  • Department of Elections, Room 48, City Hall –printed copies of updates will be available from the Department and are also posted outside the Department’s office.

After Election Day

On any day during which the Department of Elections counts ballots, the Department will release updated results at approximately 4 p.m. These releases will include results from ballots cast at polling places, remaining vote-by-mail ballots, provisional ballots, and write-in votes.

On the days during which no ballots have been counted, the Department will post a notice on its website stating there is no updated report available.

Statement of Vote, Neighborhood and District Statement of Vote, and Neighborhood Turnout Report

At 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday following Election Day, the Department of Elections will release preliminary versions of the following reports:

  • Statement of Vote showing a precinct-by-precinct breakdown of votes cast at polling places and by mail
  • Neighborhood and District Statement of Vote
  • Neighborhood Turnout Report

Official Results

Election results are considered unofficial until the Department of Elections certifies the final results. The Department will certify the final results no later than December 4, 2012, which is the end of the 28-day canvass period specified by the California Elections Code. The Department will post the final results on its website and outside the Department’s office, Room 48, City Hall, as well as issue a press release.

Why Election Results Change After Election Night

On Election Night, the Department of Elections reports results from all polling places. However, there are ballots that cannot be processed on Election Night, including vote-by-mail ballots that the Department received on Election Day, and provisional ballots cast at polling places. All aspects of the election process are open to public view, so candidates, members of the media and the public may observe signature verification and processing of vote-by-mail and provisional ballots.
