An election for Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco will be held on November 5, 2019. London Breed, the incumbent mayor, will be eligible to run for a first full term in office.

Background[edit]

London Breed was elected Mayor of San Francisco in a 2018 special election to serve until 2020, filling the unexpired term of Ed Lee, who was elected in 2011 and 2015, and died in office on December 12, 2017. Breed stood for re-election to a first full term in office in 2019.[1][2]

The election will be run using instant runoff voting; it will be the fifth decided by the preference voting adopted by a referendum in 2002.[3]

The filing deadline was 5 p.m. on June 11, 2019.[4] Among the candidates who qualified, only the incumbent Mayor Breed had a traditional political background.[2]
