This is the Voter Information Pamphlet for the Primary Election. 

2017 Municipal Election Information

American Fork City will be having a Vote By Mail election this year. All registered voters will receive their ballot in the mail. Voters will need to fill out their ballot and place in the envelope, sign the affidavit on the envelope, and place it in the mail. There is no need for a stamp as the city has opted to pay the return postage. Ballots must be postmarked the day before the Election (August 14 for the Primary, November 6 for the General)!  Voters can also drop their ballots off at the Recorder’s Office (51 E. Main) or at the Utah County Elections Office (100 East Center, Suite 3100, Provo). If a voter fails to mail the ballot prior to the deadline, they can also drop off their ballot at the Vote Service Center at the Library (64 S. 100 E.) on August 15, 2017, (Primary) or November 7, 2017 (General Election).

**Please note that if you do not receive your ballot or you lose your ballot, you must call the Utah County Elections office at 801-851-8128.**

Poll Workers will be at a vote service center at the Library on Election Day (7 a.m. to 8 p.m.) to assist those who have questions, who have lost their ballot, or for those who want to drop off their ballot. Any voters who need to vote on election day at the vote service center will vote provisionally.
