1. How can I vote?
Once you click the “How can I vote?” button and enter your address, the website will populate personalized voting information regarding how you can vote by mail, how you can vote early in person, and how you can vote on election day. Remember: If you vote in person, you’ll need proper identification. Polling location availability differs county to county.
2. Track my mail or provisional ballot
You can skip the lines on election day with a mail-in ballot while maintaining peace of mind that your vote counts. Click the “Track my mail or provisional ballot” button and enter your information for status updates on your ballot as it makes its way through the secure process.
If you want moment-by-moment updates on your ballot, you can sign up at ballottrax.utah.gov. The program will provide up-to-date notifications via phone or email on the status of your ballot.
3. Learn about candidates & issues
You can learn about the candidates on your ballot by clicking on the “Learn about candidates and issues” button.
