A San Francisco All Scheduled City Elections to be Held Only in Even-Numbered Years Act, Proposition F ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot in San Francisco, where it was defeated.

If Proposition F had been approved, it would have amended the city's charter to shift all San Francisco City elections (except special elections) to even-numbered years. The shift would have taken place after the November 2011 election. This would have resulted in a shift in election schedules for the offices of Mayor, Sheriff, District Attorney, City Attorney and Treasurer to even-numbered years.

Proposition F would also have allowed the persons elected to the offices of City Attorney and Treasurer in 2009 to serve a five-year term, until an election for those offices in 2014; the winner of the 2014 elections for those offices would then have gone back to the normal four-year term. Also, the persons elected to the offices of Mayor, Sheriff and District Attorney in 2011 would serve five-year terms, going back to the normal four-year term after the 2016 elections.
