When to Re-register

Voter registration is valid for life, unless you

  • Wish to affiliate with a different party or
  • Your record is made inactive if you don’t vote in 2 general elections

Absentee Voting

Tooele County is a “Vote By Mail” County, which means that every voter who is registered with the Republican Party will be mailed a ballot. Unaffiliated voters will receive a postcard in the mail (mid-May) asking if they want to affiliate with the Republican Party so they can vote a Republican ballot. All voters who reside in School District #1 will receive a ballot, regardless of party, to narrow down the candidates for that school board district.

If you will be out of town for the election, you can fill out a “Voter Alternate Address Request Form” to have your ballot sent. If you already have an alternate address on file with us there is no need to fill out the new form.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the legislature has passed some important changes to the election procedures in HB 3006. This election there will be no Early Voting or In-Person Polling Locations. There will be a Mobile Polling Location but only for special situations. We encourage you to vote the ballot you receive in the mail. The Republican Party is the only one that will have ballots in this election. For more information contact the Clerk’s office at 435-830-3155.

Check Your Registration

To ensure you receive a ballot, make sure you are registered and your mailing address is up to date.  Please visit vote.utah.gov to determine if you are registered, or to check that your voter registration is current.
