En español | Utah offers same-day voter registration, and every active registered voter is sent a ballot in the mail.
The 2022 midterms decided races for the U.S. Senate and House, the Utah legislature, state treasurer and other offices. The next statewide races are in 2024, with some local elections in 2023.
A redistricting plan changed the state’s legislative and U.S. congressional district boundaries and may affect which candidates appear on your ballot. A legal challenge to Utah’s congressional map is ongoing.
Utah offers same-day voter registration during early voting and on Election Day, but you’ll need to vote with a provisional ballot and show two forms of ID.
If you have questions, contact your county clerk’s office or the lieutenant governor’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-538-1041.
It depends. The Republican, Constitution and Libertarian parties require voters to be affiliated with their respective parties to vote in that party's primary. But the Democratic, United Utah and Independent American parties hold open primaries, allowing any registered voter to participate.
If you’re an active registered voter, you’ll automatically receive a ballot in the mail. Confirm your status at Vote.Utah.gov.
If you haven’t voted in the last two general elections or are otherwise deemed inactive, you'll need to update your voter registration information online or contact your county clerk's office to request a ballot.
Yes. Each county is required to hold at least four days of early voting, and some offer it for two weeks. Contact your county clerk’s office for details.
Polling place information will be listed on your county clerk’s website and at Vote.Utah.gov. Check with your county clerk’s office to confirm voting hours. If you are in line before the polls close, you’ll be allowed to vote.
If you’re already registered to vote, you’ll only need to provide ID if you vote in person. You must provide one primary form of ID that includes your name and photograph, or two forms of ID that, when combined, prove your name and current address, such as a recent utility bill and a bank statement.
Find a full list of acceptable forms of ID at Vote.Utah.gov.
