Make a Plan for Election Day!

With the Municipal Primary Election coming up on August 13, 2019, it’s important to start thinking about how you will not only register, but cast your ballot in the upcoming Primary and future elections.

Voting is easier than ever before with 27 out of Utah’s 29 Counties having vote-by-mail ballots.

Register to vote online or at your county clerk’s office by August 6 in order to request a mail ballot.

To cast your ballot: Postmark your ballot on or before August 12, 2019 (the day before the election), or drop your ballot off at your county clerk’s office, a polling location, or a drop box by 8:00 pm on Election Day.

If you are eligible for early voting, you live in a county without a mail-ballot (Carbon and Emery County), or you need to vote at an election day vote center, make a plan to get to the polls!

Don’t let your work day stop you from voting: Utah law requires an employer to provide an employee with up to two (2) hours paid time off to vote if the employee does not have three (3) or more consecutive off-duty hours in which polls are open.

Be prepared: In Utah, voters who wish to cast a ballot at a polling location must present an ID that has their name and photo, or two forms of ID with their name and address.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Ask your friends and co-workers what their plan is for election day!
  • Carpool to the polls!
  • Check your registration here.
  • Help others register and update their address to receive their mail ballots!

    Please tell me who are the candidates the Democratic party had endorsed for Washington city council?

    Thanks for your question, Tony. As you may know, municipal elections are nonpartisan. Regardless, sometimes parties endorse specific candidates. At Action Utah we do not track specific candidates or party endorsements. We recommend you contact your local (county) party leaders for endorsement information.
