If there is one thing you need to know about voting on Election Day, it’s this: Do NOT mail your ballot.
The state is not allowing votes to be counted that have a Nov. 3 postmark. Monday was the cutoff for postmarked ballots. You missed it.
If there is a second thing you need to know, it’s this: If you are not registered to vote yet, you can still participate.
For everyone who has waited until Tuesday to cast your ballot, here are your remaining options:
Put it in a drop box
Ballots will be collected by county clerk employees and counted right up until polls close at 8 p.m.
Refer to your county clerk for addresses, or a list of drop boxes statewide can be found at vote.utah.gov.
Deliver it to a voting center
In Salt Lake County, walk your completed by-mail ballot into a voting center — you don’t have to wait in line, but bring ID. Salt Lake County has 59 of them listed on the county clerk’s website, which is slco.org/clerk.
Vote in person
Again, there are 59 Salt Lake County voting centers. If you misplaced your mail ballot or haven’t yet registered to vote, you can do that at a voting center. Remember to bring that ID.
Weber County and Davis County each have just one voting assistance center, where you may get a replacement ballot or register to vote. They are at the Weber County Fair Grounds in Ogden and the Legacy Events Center in Farmington.
Use the drive-thru
Utah County has no in-person Election Day voting, but it does have eight locations where you can register, pick up a new ballot, fill it out and put it into a drop box. Bring ID and proof of residence.
Summit County has a drive-thru center at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Coalville, and Tooele County has one at the Deseret Peak Complex.
