Online programs, events, and materials continue LWVSF’s 100-year tradition of nonpartisan voter services, despite the pandemic.

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco, as part of its commitment to empower voters and defend democracy, has released its much-anticipated suite of resources that San Franciscans can rely on in the upcoming November election. These resources include ballot guides, candidate information, events, videos, and more — all online, free, and nonpartisan.

“No matter what else is happening in the world, voters deserve to have their voices heard and ballots counted,” said LWVSF Board President Alison Goh. “Despite the challenges created by the pandemic, LWVSF is here to serve the needs of our community in this important election year.”

San Franciscans can get LWVSF’s voter resources at lwvsf.org/vote. These resources include:

  • San Francisco Voting Plan: Information about registering to vote, learning what’s on the ballot, and voting early and on Election Day, designed specifically for San Francisco voters.
  • Pros & Cons Guide: An easy-to-understand, unbiased overview of all the local ballot measures, available in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.
  • Ballot Recommendations: A slate of endorsements on local propositions for people who want to vote with LWVSF’s principles and positions (LWVSF does not endorse candidates).
  • Candidate information: Tools for voters to get to know the candidates running for local office, including written statements, video interviews, and recordings of candidate forums.
  • Ballot in Brief event: A live discussion of local ballot measures, and information on voting, led by LWVSF members and the Department of Elections (October 10, 10:30 a.m.). Event registration.

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco is a nonpartisan political nonprofit that defends democracy. We provide education to encourage people to vote in elections and participate in government. We also engage in advocacy to influence public policy that benefits the community. People of all genders are welcome. Learn more at lwvsf.org.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
