Ballot measure elections in the City and County of San Francisco are conducted by the City and County of San Francisco Department of Elections, which is under the supervision of the San Francisco Elections Commission.

San Francisco adopted the process of initiative & referendum in 1898, more than a decade before California as a whole authorized the use of initiative & referendum.[1]

John Arntz is the director of the Elections Department. He wants San Francisco's election code amended to eliminate the requirement that the full legal text of ballot measures be published in the Voter Information Guides that the city makes available to voters in advance of elections. Voters could instead look up the details online, according to the Arntz plan.[2]
