Just a couple of important reminders before next Tuesday’s general election:
Ballots have been sent for all by-mail applications that were received by Friday, Oct. 24. If you live in a by-mail precinct, all of the ballots were sent by Oct. 1. If you have not received your ballot, please contact me as soon as possible.
The last day to take applications for by-mail ballots is this Thursday, Oct. 30. Any applications received on that day will have the ballots mailed out the same day and must be postmarked back to the county by Monday, Nov. 3.
If you live in a by-mail precinct, i.e. Dugway, Ibapah, Lake Point, Ophir, Rush Valley, Stockton, Terra, Vernon or Wendover, you should have received your ballot.
If you have not sent in your ballot and would like to vote at a polling location, just bring the ballot you received in the mail with you and surrender it to the election worker. They will then allow you to vote on the machines.
Early voting has been successful this year. It’s exciting to see citizens anxious to cast their ballot for the candidate they want to represent them. There are more early voting opportunities in the Tooele County Building through this Thursday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day.
On Friday, Oct. 31, early voting will be held at the county building, at the Grantsville Fire Station and at Stansbury High School from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 29, early voting will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Tooele Senior Center. You don’t have to be a senior to vote. But I’d suggest trying their breakfast. It’s delicious!
Please remember on election day that you may vote at any polling location in Tooele County. The polling locations are: Tooele County Building, 47 S. Main, basement auditorium; Tooele National Guard Armory, 16 S. First St.; Middle Canyon Elementary, 751 E. 1000 North; Overlake Elementary School, 2052 N. 170 West; Dow James Building, 935 W. Timpie Road; Lincoln Fire Station, 1753 E. Pine Canyon Road; Erda Fire Station, 2163 W. Erda Way; Grantsville Fire Station, 26 N. Center Street; and Stansbury High School, 5300 N. Aberdeen Lane. All polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
However you decide to cast your ballot, please vote. Choose the candidates that you feel will represent you and Tooele County with pride and integrity. Thanks for voting!
