Most elections in 2017 are municipal elections. The candidates and issues on the ballot are mostly local. Some areas will have a primary election on August 15, 2017. The general election will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
Check out vote.utah.gov, a website sponsored by the Utah State Elections Office. Here you can learn about important election dates, what appears on your ballot, who your elected officials are, etc. You can also register to vote electronically if your state issued ID matches your current residence.
The Disability Law Center employs staff specialists responsible for a wide variety of activities such as training people with disabilities on voting rights, surveying polling places, working with election officials, and responding to legislative inquiries. We help ensure that Utahns with disabilities can:
- Register to vote
- Access polling places
- Cast a ballot privately and independently
- File a complaint if excluded from any part of the voting process
We can provide training to groups about voting rights, registering to vote and how to vote. Please contact us if your group is interested in this free training or if you would like us to assist a group with voter registration.
