Be sure to register: The voter registration deadline for primary election is nearly here

The deadline is fast approaching to register to vote or to change your affiliation for the Republican Primary Election on June 24.

A number of people have come in and picked up affiliation forms. Please make sure you get them back to the clerk’s office by Tuesday, May 27. If you are registered as a Republican, you are set for the election. If you are registered as unaffiliated, or are registered with a party the state doesn’t recognize this year (anything other than Constitution, Democratic, Libertarian, Republican or Independent American), you are considered unaffiliated.

If you would like to vote in the primary election, you must fill out an affiliation form and get it to my office by 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 27. Only those registered as unaffiliated or considered unaffiliated (see above) may also affiliate at the poll on early voting days or election day.

Early Voting begins June 10 and runs through Friday June 20 at the Tooele County Building. There will also be Early Voting at the Grantsville Fire Station and the Stansbury High School on Friday, June 13, and Friday, June 20. As always, early voting will be held at the Senior Citizen Centers — Tooele Senior Center on Wednesday, June 18, and at the Grantsville Senior Center on Wednesday, June 11.

Vote By Mail ballots will go in the mail Friday, May 22. If you are signed up to receive a Vote By Mail ballot and have not received it by Wednesday, May 28, please call my office. Only those registered with the Republican Party who Vote By Mail will receive a ballot.

Tooele County’s May Tax Sale will be held Thursday, May 29, at 10 a.m. in the Tooele County Building, Room 321. If you are interested in participating in the tax sale, please register with Tooele County Auditor Mike Jensen in Room 208.
