Early Voting Begins In San Francisco Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Early voting is now underway around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Voting in San Francisco is off to a good start according to San Francisco’s director of elections, John Arntz.

There’s a lot of reason why people are voting so early this election, but some of the voters we asked just said they wanted to be sure to vote this year.

San Francisco resident Lawrence Wilson said he won’t be in town for the November election, while San Francisco resident Tyler Sutton, said he decided to vote on his way to lunch.

Still, if you’re going to vote early, be sure to do your homework first.

There are 17 state measures and, depending on where you live, local measures too. Even San Francisco’s director of elections, John Arntz, isn’t fully prepared to vote.

He said there’s so many propositions this year that it’s difficult for him to keep them all straight.

A full list of California 2016 propositions are available here: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/ballot-measures/qualified-ballot-measures/.
