Primary Election

Mail-in ballots must be postmarked Monday for those that are wanting to participate in mayoral and city council elections. 

Residents who have registered to vote by July 30 should have already received ballots in the mail.  If not, election officials urge you to contact your county clerk’s office.

Twenty-three cities have chosen to forgo the primary election process and use ranked-choice voting instead in the general election in November.  

The primary  election voting process in Utah looks pretty different this year thanks to the coronavirus. During one of the special legislative sessions this year, a bill was passed saying there would be no in person voting, unless counties chose to offer drive-through sites.

Cache County mail-in voting is delayed because primary election ballots didn’t arrive on time. As of Tuesday, 90 percent of the ballots are either at the post office or out for delivery.
