Election Day: It’s not too late to register to vote in Utah

While it’s too late to mail ballots, Utah voters have until 8 p.m. to vote in person or deliver their ballot to an official drop box.

It’s Election Day in Utah.

If you haven’t cast your ballot in this year’s municipal elections or in Utah’s 2nd Congressional District special election, don’t worry, you still have time.

While it’s too late to have your mail-in ballots postmarked, you have until 8 p.m. tonight to drop off your ballot at an official drop box.

In-person voting starts at 7 a.m. and voters who get in line at a polling location by 8 p.m. will be able to cast a ballot.

Also, it’s not too late to register to vote. Utahns can register to vote at a polling location on Election Day as long as they provide two forms of identification.

“If you are not already registered to vote and are voting with a provisional ballot, you will need to show two acceptable forms of ID: one that verifies identity and one for proof of residence,” according to the state’s election website.

A Utah driver license and recent utility bill, respectively, meet the two-form requirement.

While most of the country has already voted this year, Utah’s 2023 elections were pushed back to accommodate this year’s special congressional election to replace Chris Stewart. The former congressman announced this spring that he would leave Congress early and the Legislature voted in June to fund a new special election timeline to fill his seat.
