Voter deadline is Monday
The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming primary election is June 9.
"If you go in person to the Clerk’s Office, you can fill it out and hand it to us right there and then," Summit County Clerk Kent Jones said.
The Clerk’s Office is at 60 N. Main St. in Coalville and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The period has passed for mail-in registration.
The June 24 election will winnow to two the field of candidates in three school district races.
Registered Republicans can also help decide their party’s nominee for state treasurer by casting ballots in the race that pits state Rep. Mark Walker against deputy State Treasurer Richard Ellis.
The men are vying for a chance to oppose Democrat Dick Clark in the contest to replace retiring Republican Treasurer Ed Alter.
Only registered Republicans can vote in the party’s primary election, Jones explained.
And voters who are affiliated with other political parties no longer can change camps in time for the June election, he said.
"If you’re unaffiliated and you want a Republican ballot, you can affiliate at the polls," Jones said, adding that qualified voters interested in school board races "can request a nonpartisan ballot." "There is no Democratic ballot."
In western Summit County, voters will pick two people to face off in November for Park City School Board district 3, currently held by Vern Christensen. Campaigning for the seat are Gerd Holmsen Aguilar, Anne Bransford and Art Brothers.
District 3 includes parts of Park Meadows, Eagle Point, The Canyons, Silver Springs, Quarry Ranch and Ranch Creek.
Voters in South Summit will eliminate candidates in races for South Summit School Board districts 1 and 2.
The race for district 1 pits Woodland incumbent D. Deloy Bisel Jr. against Mark Littleford and Scott Nagle.
Oakley incumbent Kendall "Tiny" Woolstenhulme faces challenges from Matt Leavitt and Deby A. Anderson in the district 2 race.
"The top two go onto the November ballot," Jones said.
