Vote: Election Day is Nov. 7, 2017
Last week, registered voters in Salt Lake County received their mail-in ballots for the Nov. 7, 2017 general election. On the ballot is a proposed tax-rate-neutral bond that would be used to rebuild or remodel seven aging schools, build a new school to accommodate growth, and add security upgrades and/or skylights and windows for more natural light at 18 elementary schools in Canyons School District. The bond would impact about 17,000 students at 27 schools in Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale, Sandy and the town of Alta. Facts about the bond, including arguments in favor and against the measure, can be found at https://bond.canyonsdistrict.org/. Following is information about how to vote, courtesy of the Salt Lake County Clerk's Office.
How to Vote: There are multiple ways to perform your civic duty in Utah, making it more convenient than ever. You can vote by mail (all registered voters in Salt Lake County receive mail-in ballots), vote early in person, or vote in person on Election Day. But in order to vote, you must first register.
How to Register to Vote: You can find out if you’re already registered to vote by typing your current address into the voter information fields at this website: https://slco.org/clerk/elections/voter-info-look-up/. If you aren’t registered, or have moved since the last time you voted, you can register online at this same website as long as you have a Utah driver’s license or state ID. If you don’t have a Utah driver’s license — maybe you’ve recently relocated from another state — you can still register online, but you’ll have to print out a form and mail it in. You also can go to your county clerk’s office and register in person.
Deadline to Register: The last day to register to vote is Tuesday, Oct. 31.
