The GrowSF Pulse

GrowSF’s goal is to listen, learn, and grow. That’s why we run a statistically significant, city-wide poll every quarter and publish the results. We want to know how voters feel and we want you to know, too!

These polls will inform the endorsements made in our voter guide: we want to endorse candidates and propositions that support the changes San Franciscans already want. Local elections affect our day to day lives and some races are won by just 100 votes!
