Have You Mailed Your Absentee Ballot?

November 1, 2011

Data just released by the San Francisco Department of Elections indicates that only 17.5% of absentee ballots issued in San Francisco have been returned. With just seven days to go, a total of 36,561 ballots have been returned – meaning an overall voter turnout of just 7.8% so far.

Come on folks – we can’t Reset San Francisco if we don’t vote in the November 8 election. If you have an absentee ballot – today is a good day to drop it into your mailbox.

Don't Forget to PHIL that ballot!

Just want to make my pitch to the Reset community to vote for Phil Ting for mayor. Turnout has been low thus far, let's drive it up for Phil!

Our city government can and should be better. Phil Ting has shown us that with Reset San Francisco. It doesn't take much, just vision, forward thinking and the belief that there is no reason for San Francisco city government to be anything but as innovative as the people of San Francisco.

So don't forget to PHIL that ballot and vote for Phil Ting for mayor!
