San Francisco residents wanting to cast their votes Nov. 4 may not be heading to the same polling places they did in June, the Department of Elections announced today.

According to the department, a total of 40 polling sites in the city have moved between the June and November elections and voters need to be aware of the changes.

Voters are urged to check the back cover of their voter information pamphlets to confirm the address of their polling places.

In addition, the Department of Elections will be posting signs at old locations advising residents of their new polling places. The signs will include directions, cross streets and accessibility information.

The department said that if any additional polling places change after the voter information pamphlets have been sent, voters will be sent a postcard advising them of the new location.
