As voting in any election is a key component of representative democracy, Action Utah is committed to ensuring that Utahns have resources and information to learn about what and who is on their ballot. We are presenting a series of four virtual events to inform you about What’s on Your Ballot.

If you want more info on the 2020 Election, commit to voting in 2020 by signing the Action Utah Voter Pledge! We’ll follow up to remind you about voting dates and procedures to ensure that you don’t miss your chance to cast a ballot and get your voice heard. We’ll also remind you about important upcoming dates like the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates, which will be kicking off in September.
