Election Tips and Resources

Regardless of election anxiety in its many forms, the day of political reckoning approaches. Several resources are available to voters in the meantime. For those that have already mailed their ballot, visit www.vote.utah.gov and look up if your ballot has been marked as received under the Voter Info/Track Ballot link. Another resource available can be found on the Uintah County website in the form of an informative video clip that explains what happens to a ballot once it is dropped in the mail and security measures taken when voting by mail. Another important piece of information that cannot be emphasized enough is that vote by mail ballots must be postmarked November 7th of before. Those worried about a ballot being postmarked on time are urged to drop off their ballot at the County Clerk’s office. Voters also have the option of voting at a traditional booth at their County building but they will need to bring in the ballot they received in the mail. Anyone who has not received a ballot in the mail are encouraged to call their County Clerk’s office. And finally, the deadline to register to vote is November 1st.
