This year’s election will be conducted by the Utah County Elections office using Vote-by-Mail. All registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail with instructions on how to return the ballot. Ballots must be mailed to registered voters no sooner than 21 days and no later than 14 days prior to the election – so watch for your ballot! You can expect to see your ballots approximately 21 days before the election. If you do not receive a ballot you will need to contact the Utah County Elections office (801-851-8128).
When you receive your ballot, you may return your ballot by one of the following ways:
- Mail your ballot (remember it MUST be postmarked no later than the day before the election!).
- Drop off your ballot at any voter service center in the county on the day of election.
- Drop off your ballot at the City Administration building (51 E. Main) prior to the day of election.
Since all ballots will be mailed out to each registered voter, it is important to make sure your voter registration is current. If you have changed your name or address (even if you have moved from one home to another within the city) you need to re-register. Please visit www.vote.utah.gov to register to vote (if you have a current Utah Driver License or State ID Card) or to update your voter registration.
You may also register to vote by filling out a registration form and mailing it to the Utah County Clerk’s office. The forms are available on the County’s webpage or at their office (100 E. Center Street, Provo) or on the City’s website or at the city offices (51 E. Main Street).
The deadline for submitting a registration form via the mail is 30 days prior to the election or 7 days if you take the form to the County Elections office.
Voter Registration is handled through the Utah County Elections office. Please call 801-851-8128 with voter registration questions.
With Utah County conducting the Vote by Mail election, early voting will only take place at the Utah County Elections Office. If you have any questions, please call their office at 801-851-8128.
If you have any questions, please call the City Recorder’s office at 801-763-3000.
