HOW TO REGISTER TO VOTE

In Utah, it is simple to register. Here are three easy ways.

  1. REGISTER ONLINE. With a current Utah drivers’ license, you can easily register online here. In order to register online, your Utah drivers license needs to have your current address, but that can easily be updated online right from the same link! NOTE: You must register online to vote at least 7 days prior to an election in order to qualify to vote in that election.
  2. MAIL IN FORM. If you don’t want to register online, you can fill out this form and mail it in.  If you don’t have a Utah drivers license or state-issued ID, fill in the form, including the portion with the last four digits of your social security number to register! (You can leave blank the portion asking for the Utah drivers license number.) NOTE: You must mail in paper registration forms at least 30 days in advance of an election to qualify to vote in that election.
  3. IN PERSON. You can also register in-person at the county clerks’ office in your county and several other government offices (including your local DMV, the Department of Workforce Services, and the Utah State Department of Health).

NOTE: You must register to vote in person at least 7 days prior to an election in order to qualify to vote in that election.
