Sound up 🔊  for our live interview 👇 with Lanny Chapman, Salt Lake County Clerk, and at 5:05 p.m., Brian McKenzie, Davis County Clerk.

 

DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — Today is Election Day in Utah. There are two options to make sure your vote is counted. 

The time to vote by mail has passed. Voters need to head to a polling location or leave their ballot in a ballot drop box. Additionally, be sure to be in line to vote by 8 p.m. when both polls and drop boxes close. 

Some Utah voters will decide who replaces Congressman Chris Stewart. However, Davis County Clerk Brian McKenzie said municipal elections are just as important.

“These individuals, like any elected official, but these ones in particular, have the most direct impact on our daily lives,” said McKenzie.

Not registered? No problem. 

If you aren’t registered to vote yet, McKenzie said you can take care of that at the polls today. McKenzie just reminds voters to be prepared.

“You need to bring something that shows who you are, such as like your driver’s license, a passport, things like that. Then, you’ll need to have something that proves your residency. That could be a utility bill or bank statement.”
