The San Francisco Department of Elections will be reporting unofficial election results for the November 2, 2010 Consolidated General Election according to the following schedule and locations:

Election Night, November 2

The first results will be released at approximately 8:45 p.m., and will only include votes from vote-by-mail ballots. Approximately one hour later, the second report will be released, which will include votes cast at the polling places. Subsequent reports will be released every half hour until approximately midnight.

Results will be available from the following sources on Election Night:

· North Light Court, City Hall – results will be displayed on a large monitor and updated hardcopies will be distributed approximately every hour.

· San Francisco Government Television – SFGTV Channel 26 will be reporting results as updated.

After Election Day

Every day in which new votes are processed the Department will release updated results at approximately 4 p.m. These near-daily reports may include results from ballots cast at polling places, vote-by-mail ballots, provisional ballots, and write-in votes.

The Department will continue to release updated unofficial results until all ballots have been counted and the results are certified.

Final Results

The Department will certify the final results no later than November 30, which is the end of the 28-day post-election canvass period specified by the California Elections Code. Due to the five-card ballot, the Department expects to continue counting ballots for a minimum of three weeks. The Department will announce the final election results by issuing a press release, and posting notices on its website and at its main office in Room 48 of City Hall.
