SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Utah’s primary election is this coming Tuesday and casting your ballot will be different due to the coronavirus pandemic. Utah lawmakers implemented temporary changes that put an end to in person voting. The changes were made in an effort to slow the spread and transmission of COVID-19.

If you haven’t already mailed in your ballot, registered voters now have until Tuesday to make their vote count. If you don’t have time to stop by the post office, ballot drop boxes will be available until 8pm Tuesday.

Haven’t filled out your ballot? Don’t worry. You now have an extra day to get it in the mail. Normally, the deadline for mail-in ballots is the Monday before the election, but for this primary, officials moved the deadline to Tuesday.

Drop boxes for ballots will be available throughout the state until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

However, if you have ballot issues you won’t be able to head to your local polling location because there won’t be any due to the pandemic. Registered voters can get help at drive-up services offered in seven counties: Box Elder, Davis, Iron, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah and Weber.

If you plan on using the drive-up services in Salt Lake County make sure you wear a face mask due to the county’s new face mask mandate. Election workers will be in personal protective equipment.

Drive-up locations in the seven counties will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 30.
