San Francisco Results for Nov. 3, 2020, Local and State Elections

San Francisco voters have approved a crucial bond measure and several tax measures by wide margins and voted in favor of propositions removing a mandatory minimum staffing level for the police department and adding oversight for the sheriff’s department. Votes remain to be tallied, however. Lila LaHood, publisher of the San Francisco Public Press, and Laura Wenus, host of the radio show and podcast “Civic,” discuss the results and what they mean for the city. (Scroll down for results.)

These election results are provisional. We will update the page as new information becomes available from the San Francisco Department of Elections and the California Secretary of State.
