San Francisco and several other Bay Area counties are holding elections two weeks from tomorrow. That means that today is the last day to register. If you’re not signed up, or if you need to update your address or other registration information, you can do that online at registertovote.ca.gov. If you go that route, you’ve got until midnight to get your registration in. If you want face-to-face contact with a government employee to help you sign up, you have until 5 this afternoon.

In San Francisco, voters can register at the Department of Elections on the ground floor of City Hall. The city’s Department of Elections Outreach Team will be helping voters register at different locations throughout the City today:

  • The Woman’s Building, 3543 18th Street from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
  • Montgomery, Powell, and Castro transit stations from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • City Hall front entrance (Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place) from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

And here are links to the registrars’ sites in the Bay Area counties holding elections Nov. 5:

Contra Costa County
Marin County
San Mateo County
