Here are some key deadlines for voters who haven’t registered

Thanks to everyone who quickly returned their ballot request for unaffiliated voters. I apologize for the short turn-around time; the printer had problems, therefore, the May 20 date became flexible. If you haven’t returned yours yet, please do so as soon as possible.

For those not yet registered to vote in Tooele County, or who have moved around within Tooele County, please make note of the following deadlines:

May 31: Last day a voter can register to vote by mailing a registration form.

May 31: Last day a voter may change their party affiliation for the Primary Election.

June 7: By-Mail Ballots mailed.

June 13: Last day to register in person at the Tooele County Clerk/Auditor’s Office, online, or at the Division of Motor Vehicles to vote early.

June 14-23 (weekdays): First day of Early Voting in clerk’s office.

June 21: Last day to register in person in the clerk’s office, online or at DMV to vote on primary election day.

Voter registration forms can be found at www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/pdf/forms/mailinregistration.pdf and affiliation forms can be found at www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/forms.htm.

Thanks to all who came to the Stansbury Park Vote By Mail meeting on Thursday, May 19. A copy of the presentation can be found on the clerk’s website at www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/pdf/2016/SP_presentation.pdf.

The presentation is informative and should prove interesting for anyone wanting to know more about Vote By Mail balloting. With 20 of Utah’s 29 counties already voting entirely by mail, this seems to be the wave of the future. Most of the precincts in Tooele County already use vote-by-mail ballots and usually boast a higher voter turnout than traditional polling locations.

The May Tax Sale was completed on May 18. Nine properties went up for tax sale and only two did not sell. I’m grateful no homes were involved. To see a list of the results, please follow this link: www.co.tooele.ut.us/Auditor/pdf/TaxSaleResults2016.pdf.
