Want to vote in the city elections in November? Registration deadlines are approaching.

Voter registrations sent by mail must be postmarked by next Monday. Voters who miss that deadline can hand deliver their forms to their county clerk’s office through Oct. 21.

(Candidates and others who have been collecting voter registration forms must either mail them or deliver them by Oct. 7; they cannot hand deliver someone else’s form after that date).

Citizens with a current Utah driver license or state ID card can register through Oct. 21 in person at their county clerk’s office or online at vote.utah.gov.

Locations of some clerks’ offices are: Cache County, 179 N. Main St., Suite 102, Logan; Davis County, 61 S. Main St., Room 104, Farmington; Salt Lake County, 2001 S. State St., S1100, Salt Lake City; Summit County, 60 N. Main St., Coalville; Tooele County, 47 S. Main, St. Tooele; Utah County, 100 E. Center St., Room 3100, Provo; and Weber County, 2380 Washington Blvd., Suite 320, Ogden.

Utah residents who want to vote by absentee ballot have until Oct. 31 to request one from the county clerk’s office. Utahns living outside the United States must ask by Oct. 16.

The election for mayor and city council seats is Nov. 5, with early voting taking place Oct. 22 through Nov. 1.

Voting early, either in person or by mail, has become increasingly popular, according to Salt Lake County Elections Director Rozan Mitchell. The county has 135,000 people on its permanent vote-by-mail list who are automatically mailed a ballot each election, she said.

In last year’s presidential election, almost 100,000 Salt Lake County voters went to the polls early, Mitchell said. In this year’s Aug. 13 city primary, more people voted early than voted on Election Day, she said.

For more information on voting, call or visit your county clerk’s office online or visit vote.utah.gov.
