San Francisco Board of Supervisors elections, 2000

Jump to: navigation, search

The 2000 San Francisco Board of Supervisors elections occurred on November 7, 2000, with a runoff election held on December 12, 2000. All eleven seats were contested. Elections to odd-numbered districts were to four-year terms, while elections to even-numbered districts were to transitional two-year terms, then four-year terms thereafter.

This election was the first following the reintroduction of electoral districts for the Board of Supervisors in 2000; previously, except for a short period of time, supervisors were elected at-large. The first districts, implemented in 1977, saw Harvey Milk and Dan White attain office; the districts were abolished in 1980 in the wake of Milk's assassination by White.

Municipal elections in California are officially non-partisan, though most candidates in San Francisco do receive funding and support from various political parties.
