Take action before 10 am tomorrow! Coronavirus poses health risks to voters and poll workers that requires special election procedures. During the June Primary, a bill was passed in a special session to enact special procedures specific to that election. TOMORROW (August 20) the Utah State Legislature will vote on a bill, SB 6007 Amendments to Elections (Sen. Harper/Rep. Handy) to make some necessary changes for the general election. BUT this bill would be greatly improved with a few small revisions!
County clerks have asked for revisions to ensure ballots reach voters and can be received on time to be counted, given ongoing challenges with mail delivery through the Postal Service. In addition, election experts recommend expanded ballot drop box access for voters who choose not to vote in person.
Ask your state senator and state representative to request and support these minor changes to improve access to voting and ensure all eligible Utahns are afforded their legal right to cast a ballot on November 3!
