  • 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
  • Must reside at the address where you are registered

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 by Monday, November 7, 2022.
  • Dropbox: General Election ballots must be deposited in an official dropbox by 8:00 pm on November 8, 2022.
  • In Person: On General Election Day, November 8, 2022, visit a Voting Assistance Center if you did not receive your ballot in the mail or  you need assistance with voting.

Accessibility Resources

If you or a loved one are temporarily or permanently disabled and need an accommodation to vote, you can call to sign up with the Clerk’s office to use a Telephone App called VOATZ or you can vote in person where accessible ballot marking devices are available.

For questions about accessibility resources, 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:

  1. Drop your ballot off at a drop box location.
  2. 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, November 8, 2022.

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.
