A city-by-city look at the races, including candidate answers to Salt Lake Tribune questions.

Haven’t turned in your ballot yet? Don’t worry, you’re in good company.

Turnout, as of Oct. 22, was less than 10% in Salt Lake County, according to longtime County Clerk Sherrie Swensen.

She says that’s not too surprising. When it comes to municipal elections, voters often need to do their homework before filling out their ballots.

“It just takes them a little more time to look into the candidates,” she said, noting she hasn’t voted yet.

We are here to help.

The Salt Lake Tribune reached out to mayoral candidates in contested elections. Reporters also reached out to the candidates for Salt Lake City Council. The vast majority responded to a short list of key questions. Click on your city to find their responses (which have been edited for clarity).

Some cities are using ranked-choice voting. It means you have the option of ranking your second choice, your third choice and so on. But if you only want to pick your favorite, that’s still OK as well.

Ballots must be postmarked before Election Day, which is Nov. 2. They can be dropped off on Election Day, as well. But you don’t have to wait until the very end, Swensen expects to see a whole rush of ballots come in this week.
