Important dates for voters
Election Day is Nov. 4 and officials in Summit County, who expect record turnout at the polls, say people should take note of several deadlines to register to vote in the general election.
Voters will help choose a new president, congressman, state lawmakers, five new Summit County councilors and school board members in Park City, Kamas and Coalville.
Votes will also be cast on five proposed amendments to the Utah Constitution including: clarifying how a vacancy in the office of the governor or lieutenant governor is filled, allowing a permanent state trust fund, changing the start date for the general session of the Utah Legislature from Martin Luther King Jr. Day to the fourth Monday in January, changing dates in relation to congressional and legislative redistricting and defining how money in the state school fund can be invested.
Oct. 6 is the last day to register by mail and the deadline to register to vote early in Summit County, said Ryan Cowley, a spokesman for the Summit County Clerk’s Office.
Oct. 20 is the deadline to register in person at the County Clerk’s Office at 60 N. Main in Coalville, Cowley explained.
The deadline to postmark an absentee ballot for it to count Election Day is Nov. 3. The polls open Nov. 4 at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
People can check their voter registration status at summitcounty.org/clerk.
Voters can cast ballots early at four locations in the county starting Oct. 21 at 10 a.m. Early voting ends Oct. 31 and polls for early voting close each day at 5 p.m.
People must show government issued photo identifications at the polls to vote early, Cowley said.
