Between state, city measures and proposals, San Franciscans face dizzying Election Day

The polls at San Francisco City Hall closed at 5 o'clock Monday night, but there's still plenty of time to vote on Election Day.

San Franciscans in particular, have a dizzying number of city and state propositions to consider this election, from a proposed soda tax and a ban on homeless tents, to whether to make recreational marijuana legal.

"There was a lot of homework involved! I remember the [ballot] book coming and it being this thick!" said James Tucker of San Francisco, using his fingers to demonstrate.

"I read everything a week ago. I wrote everything down so I can zip through it," boasted Brandi Rogers, who stood in the voting line at City Hall with her scratch notes handy.

"I think there's a lot at stake this election," said Jennifer Lutz, 46, who said she hasn't missed voting in an election yet.

Voters in even-numbered districts had to fill out four voter cards, front and back, those in odd-numbered districts had five pages.

Of the 513,000 registered voters in the city, 334,000, or 65 percent, voted by mail-in-ballot.

At City Hall on Monday, voters took advantage of the drop-off/drive-by ballot booth.

Arguably the most contentious and closest race in the city is the one for California State Senate.

Both Supervisors Scott Wiener and Jane Kim were out in full force in a last-ditch effort to snatch up last-minute votes.

"It's a hard-fought race and and it's a key race because there are only 40 state senators for the 6th largest economy in the world so it matters," said Wiener, as he passed out leaflets in front of the Twitter building on Market Street.

"Win or lose, I feel really good about our campaign we ran a positive campaign that was about making San Francisco more affordable and about making it a region for all of us." said Kim, as she autographed voter pamphlets for students and their parents at Lafayette Elementary School in the Richmond District.

While most voters had decided on who to vote for, Rogers told us she was still waffling between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It's scary because I don't know- I don't know who- I'm gonna decide when I go right in there who I'm gonna vote for, isn't that crazy?"

"It seems like a battle between good and evil. It tore my family apart, hopefully we'll get back together after the election though," said Tucker hopefully.

The polls will remain open at City Hall until 8 p.m. Tuesday night.

Then elections officials will be working around the clock through Thursday, putting the ballots through the tabulating machine. It will take 2-3 weeks for every vote to be counted.
