San Franciscans voted on seven local ballot measures for the March 5 primary election.

UPDATE 03/08/24, 4:10 p.m.: The story was updated with the most recent ballot and voter turnout figures from the San Francisco Department of Elections. 

The San Francisco Department of Elections is reporting results for the seven local propositions on the March 5 ballot. With 193,000 ballots counted, here’s what we know so far.

Current results consist of vote-by-mail results received before election day, as well as precincts that have reported in-person results. The department estimated there are 37,500 votes left to count.

Results released on election night are preliminary and will change in subsequent days as the Department of Elections continues counting ballots. For results for other races, see the city’s elections results website

The department reported 38.6% voter turnout so far. Just over 500,000 voters are registered in San Francisco.

Proposition 1, the sole state-level measure, stands at 50.1% “yes” and 49.9% “no” with all 20,855 precincts partially reporting. The state specifies partial reporting because vote-by-mail, provisional and other ballots will be processed and counted after election night.
