Register to vote in time for primary elections!

On August 13th primary elections will be held across the state of Utah for 2019’s municipal elections. These are nonpartisan elections to determine elected officials in our local governments, such as city council, mayor, sewer and water, who make decisions on all kinds of issues that impact our daily lives.

NOW IS THE TIME TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES!

Beware – you must be registered to vote in order to cast a ballot in the primary elections. Check out upcoming voter registration deadlines below!

Please note: Primary elections only occur in municipalities that have more than twice the number of candidates running for any given elected seat. Therefore, not all municipalities will hold primary elections. Also, not all voters in a municipality will be eligible to vote in a primary election if the primary is held for an elected seat that represents only a district within that municipality (such as some city council seats). Voters living outside the city limits of a municipality are likewise ineligible to vote.
