Tuesday June 26 will see Utahns casting ballots in the state’s Primary Election. The two candidates who received the most delegate votes at the party conventions but did not reach the threshold to win the party’s spot on the November election ballot will face each other in the Primary Election.
The Utah Republican Party limits voting to persons registered as Republicans. Other parties in the state allow any registered voter to cast their ballot. However, voters may only cast their ballots for one party’s slate of candidates. If voters have registered as unaffiliated and wish to vote the Republican ballot, they can change their registration to the Republican Party at the voting location. Following the election, they can switch back to unaffiliated or register with another party.
Although the election date is June 26, absentee voting and early voting is an option for many voters. Request and submit an absentee voting application online or at your county clerk’s office by June 22. Voters who have already registered can take advantage of the early voting period weekdays between June 12 and June 22. If you haven’t registered yet, you have until June 11 to register to vote on Primary Election Day, June 26. You can register online or at your county clerk’s office.
