Municipal elections are nonpartisan elections that happen every two years to select new municipal and special service district representatives such as city mayors, city council, parks & rec, sewer and water officials. This year there will also be a special election in Utah’s Congressional District 3. Voter participation is historically low in Utah across all elections, but particularly in municipal elections. LOW VOTER TURNOUT MEANS YOUR VOTE COUNTS MORE!
If you are a qualified voter living within the boundaries of a municipality, be sure to vote on November 7th. But you have to be registered by October 31st in order to vote.
