UPDATE: November 5, 2019 Election Results

UPDATE - November 6, 2019 at 9:45 a.m.

As anticipated, the turnout for yesterday's election was low - around 23% - and provided predictably known and unknown results. Here is the synopsis of what we know, so far, as there are a number of ballots to count that will determine the outcome of key races important to BOMA San Francisco members. They will require more time, a few days perhaps, to determine the winners of those close contests. 

Based on recommendations from the BOMA SF-PAC Voter Guide, below, and the latest results from the San Francisco Department of Elections, here's where we stand at present:

Local Propositions

Proposition A - Affordable Housing Bond
  • Requires 2/3rds voter approval and the measure is at approximately 69.5%. 

Proposition D - Traffic Congestion Mitigation Tax
  • Requires 2/3rds voter approval and the measure is at approximately at 66.6%.

Candidates - San Francisco


 London Breed - Mayor
Dennis Herrera - City Attorney
Jose Cisneros - City Treasurer 

INDETERMINATE (Incredibly Close!)

Vallie Brown - District 5 Supervisor
Suzy Loftus - District Attorney

  • 1.5% on a shared-ride fare; and

The same business tax would also apply to driverless vehicle companies. The City would impose these taxes on fares charged by these companies until Nov. 5, 2045.
