Vote by Mail
Elections in Salt Lake County are conducted mainly by mail. Ballots are mailed to active, registered voters 21 days prior to an election, according to Utah State law.
The post office does not forward ballots. If you need your ballot mailed to an address other than the address where you are registered to vote, contact the Salt Lake County Election Office.
To receive a mail-in ballot you must be registered to vote no later than eleven days before an election.
Mail-in ballots may be returned one of these three ways:
Deposit it in a ballot drop-box (open 24/7) in Salt Lake County. Drop boxes are open until 8 PM on Election Day.Drop Box Locations
Drop it off at any Election Day Vote Center between 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM on Election Day.List of Vote Centers
Return it by mail in the postage-paid return envelope provided in your ballot packet. To be valid, your ballot must be postmarked no later than Election Day (please note that this deadline will only be in effect for the upcoming 2023 Primary Election and will return to the day before Election Day in all elections following that).
