Bay View Voters Guide

It’s been a long, loud election season; let’s end it right by VOTING 100%, as the oldtimers used to say. If you can’t vote the top of the ticket, elect these bright, young Black candidates.

For the Nov. 8 election, weekend voting at City Hall began Oct. 29, and on Election Day, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. You can take this guide into the voting booth. To learn more, visit or call 415- 554-4375.
