Primary election is almost here, and don’t forget to sign your ballot

The Primary Election for Tooele City and Stansbury Park is nearly here. If you haven’t mailed in your ballot, please do so. And don’t forget to sign them! 

Ballots must be postmarked no later than the day before the election, which is Aug. 12. The Tooele City post office’s last pickup is 5 p.m. You can also drop ballots off in person at the drop box at Tooele City Hall, 90 N. Main; Stansbury Park in the Kravers parking lot; or on the east side of the Tooele County Building in the alley at 47 S. Main until the polls close at 8 p.m. on Aug. 13. 

There are a few more things to mention about the upcoming election. The County Clerk’s office has known of times in the past when individuals have offered to collect ballots from voters and drop them off at a ballot box. There is no legal issue with this being done; however, we caution you to think twice before handing your ballot to anyone in an unofficial capacity. It is always best to know with certainty that your ballot is being dropped off. 

Lastly, if you still haven’t voted, let me remind you of the information that is available on the County Clerk’s website at www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/elections.htm. This information includes candidate profiles, candidate financial forms, polling and ballot drop box locations, and voter precinct maps.   

If you don’t see what you’re looking for or have any other questions, please call the office at 435-843-3140. Look for Election Day results on Aug. 13 on the clerk’s webpage, our Twitter page @clerkcounty, and the clerk’s Instragram page, user name, tooelecountyclerk. Follow us for all things going on with elections. Happy voting!

Tenille Tingey is chief deputy clerk in the Tooele County Clerk’s office.
