En español | Utah’s Nov. 8 general election will decide races for the U.S. Senate and House, the Utah legislature, state treasurer and other offices.
A redistricting plan has changed the state’s legislative and U.S. congressional district boundaries and may affect which candidates appear on your ballot.
The deadline to get your registration to your county clerk is 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28.
If you miss the registration deadline, you can register in person and vote using a provisional ballot at an early voting location or on Election Day, but you will be required to present two forms of identification.
Should you have any questions about registering to vote, contact your county clerk’s office. Or reach out to the lieutenant governor’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-538-1041.
If you’re an active registered voter, you’ll automatically receive a ballot in the mail. Confirm your status on the Vote.Utah.gov page. If you haven’t voted in the last two general elections or are otherwise deemed inactive, you will need to request a mail ballot.
If you’re requesting a ballot or need your ballot sent to an alternative mailing address, be sure to update your voter registration information online or reach out to your county clerk’s office for assistance no later than Tuesday, Nov. 1. But do this sooner if you can, since county clerks will start mailing out ballots on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
You can return your completed ballot in several ways.
Yes. Each county is required to hold at least four days of early voting, and some will offer it for two weeks. Contact your county clerk’s office for details.
The state’s general election is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Polling place information will be listed on your county clerk’s website and in the “How can I vote?” section at Vote.Utah.gov.
If you’re already registered to vote, you’ll only need to provide ID if you vote in person. You must provide one valid primary form of ID that includes your name and photograph, or two forms of ID that, when combined, show your name and current address.
Acceptable forms of primary ID cannot be expired and include:
A full list of other forms of acceptable ID, as long as you present two of them, is on the Vote.Utah.gov website. Together the two forms of ID should prove your name and your current address. Some examples include:
