Reminder: register to vote



In 2016, there was only a 41.4% overall voter turnout for the Utah General Election and even more alarming, only 21.4% in Utah County. Voting is a constitutionally protected right that allows everyone to have a voice in governmental matters. In recent years, due to lackluster voter turnout, people have become apathetic towards voting.

Registering to vote is now easier than ever. By simply visiting, citizens can register to vote by entering their driver’s license or other forms of identification. They can also change any information on their voter registration record and affiliate with a party if they desire.

Citizens can also register to vote in the following ways:

  • Register to vote by mail. Fill out a paper registration form and mail it to your county clerk. The form must be postmarked by October 9, 2018 to be valid.
  • Register online. A current Utah driver license or ID is required. The deadline to register online is October 30, 2018.
  • Register at your county clerk’s office. The deadline to register at your clerk’s office is October 30, 2018.
  • Register at the polls. Be sure to provide identification and proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill) with you.

Mail-in ballots must be postmarked on or before November 5, 2018. Ballots may also be dropped off on election day, November 6 at the county clerk’s office, a polling location, or a ballot drop off box.
