The deadline to register and receive a vote by mail ballot is 11 days before Election Day. Voters who are not registered, but are otherwise eligible to vote, may vote provisionally in person on Election Day.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR 2024:
The 2024 deadline to change party affiliation is January 6, 2024. After that, you cannot change party affiliation until after both the Presidential and State Primary Elections. Please make sure your voter registration reflects the party ballot you would like to receive for the 2024 Primary Elections.

- Must be a resident of Utah for at least 30 days prior to election
- Must be 18 years of age on or before the General Election

Check to see if you are registered to vote.
How do I vote?
Active registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail about three weeks before the election. There are several ways to return your ballot.
- By Mail: General Election ballots must be postmarked the day before Election Day.
- Dropbox: General Election ballots must be deposited in an official dropbox by 8:00 pm on Election Day
- In Person: On Election Day, visit a Voting Assistance Center if you did not receive your ballot in the mail or you need assistance with voting.
If you or a loved one are temporarily or permanently disabled and need an accommodation to vote, please call 435-336-3040.
Voting by Mail FAQ
How does vote by mail work?
Your county clerk uses various security and privacy measures to ensure that your mail ballot is secret and counted accurately. Watch this short video that explains their process:
Do I have to mail my ballot?
No. If you do not want to mail your ballot using the United States Postal Service, you have other options to turn in your ballot:
- Drop your ballot off at a drop box location.
- Drop your ballot off at an early voting location or an Election Day voting location. Find a location near you.
You can return your ballot by mail but it must be postmarked before election day. If you prefer to use a secure dropbox, your ballot must be dropped off before 8:00 pm on Election Day.
What happens if my signature on my ballot envelope doesn’t match?
Your county election officials will compare the signature on your ballot envelope with the signature on your previous ballots and your voter registration form. If your signature does not match, your county clerk will notify you. You will be given an opportunity to submit an affidavit called a “cure letter” that allows you to affirm that your signature is correct. Once your county election official receives your affidavit, the ballot will be counted.

Military and overseas voters can contact the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), which provides tools and resources to ensure that U.S. citizens who want to vote can do so from anywhere in the world.
Voters can find instructions and the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA), which is the registration form, or the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), the backup ballot, online.

Instructions for completing the FWAB
If you don’t receive a ballot in time to vote, you may complete a FWAB. For the upcoming election, you would go to the bottom of the FWAB and write in the office and preferred candidate’s name or your choice on ballot initiatives and return that to our office.
Electronic ballots must be received by the Elections Office no later than 8:00 pm (Mountain Standard Time) on Election Day.
