Make sure you are registered for June 30 primary election

Deadline is next week 

Utah’s 2020 Primary Election will be on June 30. To help with public health safety, this year’s election will be conducted by mail. Please be sure you’ve registered and that your voting information is up to date at Vote.Utah.gov by June 19. Ballots will be mailed out using that information. Unlike the general election in November, not all registered voters will automatically receive a Primary ballot. Check Vote.Utah.gov to see if you will get a ballot.

Please update your address and register to vote. Deadline is coming up and ballots are going out. Let us know as soon as you can if you don’t get a ballot, by calling 435-843-3155.

Stay Safe, Stay Home, Vote by Mail

Due to current conditions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, jurisdictions nationwide are beginning to adopt vote by mail as an option to help provide voting opportunities and help keep people safe.

Tooele County has been voting entirely by mail since 2018. We are fortunate that this isn’t new for us.

If you are a voter who prefers to vote in person, for this election, please help keep our election volunteers safe by voting and returning your ballot by mail.

Return Your Ballot Early

Ballots will be quarantined for a period when they are returned to our office in an effort to help protect our election workers that receive and process ballots.

To help us ensure ballots can be counted as quickly as possible, please return your ballot as soon as you have made your selections.

All ballots that are returned timely will be counted, but please don’t wait until the deadline to return your ballot.

In Person Voting

For this election:

• There is no in person early voting.

• There are no regular polling places on election day.

• There is one (1) limited drive-up voting option on election day.

Our drive-up voting option is available to voters who have lost their ballot, who didn’t receive one, and provides accessible voting options for voter with a disability.

If you have received this ballot, we need your help. Please vote this ballot and return it by mail. This will allow us to serve voters on Election day who otherwise will not have the opportunity to vote.

Tenille Tingey is the Chief Deputy Clerk for Tooele County.
