SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – The Primary Election is Tuesday.
State Director of Elections Justin Lee stops by Inside Utah Politics to discuss deadlines and what you need to know to make your vote count.
“The legislature enacted election day registrations during the last legislative sessions, so if someone missed the deadline or if someone doesn’t know if they’re registered to vote, go to the polls on Election Day and you’ll be able to vote,” said Lee.
If you decide to register to vote on Election Day there are a few things you will need to have with you.
“You’ll want to bring proof of your identification and usually two pieces are best. Something like your driver license or something with your picture on it and something that shows you live where you say you live like a bank statement or a utility bill,” said Lee.
Lee also addresses the importance of mail-in ballots.
“The biggest deadline is on Monday, the day before the election. You want to get the thing post marked if you’re going to send it in the mail. Post marking is due the day before the election. The thing people want to be aware of is that different post offices will post mark at different times,” said Lee.
He also talks about voter turnout and the new age limits for voters.
