Salt Lake County Clerk




The 2024 Primary Election will take place on Tuesday, June 25, 2024. All active, eligible voters will be mailed a ballot on June 4 and are encouraged to vote and return that ballot in a timely manner so that it may be counted. Early Voting and Election Day Vote centers are also available for voters who prefer to vote in person.

A primary election is an opportunity for voters to select candidates to represent their political party in the election in November.  

Note: The Democratic and Republican parties are the only parties participating in the June 25 Primary Election. All other parties have already identified the candidates who will represent them in the General Election. As such, only voters who belong to the Democratic or Republican Parties, or those who have requested a Democratic ballot, will receive a ballot for the June 25 election. Unaffiliated voters living in some parts of Salt Lake County may also receive ballots for local, non-partisan, school board contests.

To view your political party affiliation, please use our lookup tool here. If you did not receive a ballot and believe you should have, please contact our office. 

Please visit the links and FAQs below for more election information.

How can I receive a ballot for the election?
To participate in the Primary Election you must either be a member of the Democratic or Republican parties, or you must request a Democratic ballot. Current members of those parties will automatically have a ballot sent to them. Unaffiliated voters living in some parts of Salt Lake County may also receive ballots for local, non-partisan, school board contests.

To request a ballot please fill out and submit this form. You can learn more about how to join a party or participate in primary elections here.

When will my ballot be mailed?
Ballots will be mailed out June 4 to all active registered voters. As voters update their addresses or register to vote, ballots will be mailed through June 18.

Why didn't I receive a ballot?
Only active, eligible voters who have a contest that pertains to their voting precinct, and who belong to the Democratic or Republican parties will be automatically sent a ballot. Voters living in some parts of the county who are not currently affiliated with a party may also receive a ballot for local, non-partisan, school board elections. If you meet these criteria and did not receive a ballot, please contact our office.

Unaffiliated voters who would like to participate in the Democratic Primary Election may request a ballot.

I got the wrong ballot / Not the ballot I expected
Ballots are sent to voters based on their party affiliation. If you didn't receive the ballot you expected, please contact our office.

What should I do if I make a mistake on my ballot?
If you make a mistake on your ballot or decide to change your vote, you can draw a line through the oval and candidate name you do not want, and then fill in the oval for the correct one. When the ballots are scanned the change will be noted. If the ballot gets damaged or it is not possible to clearly indicate your choice, please contact our office and we will cancel the old ballot and send you a new one. A replacement ballot cannot be ordered after June 18.

Who should I vote for?
The Salt Lake County Clerk's office is an apolitical office and we do not make voting recommendations. Who you vote for is a personal choice. We strongly encourage every voter to research candidates and issues and make informed choices on their ballot.

How can I learn about the candidates?
A list of candidates with their contact information is available on our Candidates page. Candidate profiles are also available on the state's website.

How can I return my mail-in ballot?
You may return your mail-in ballot one of three ways: 1) By dropping it in any of the ballot drop boxes located throughout Salt Lake County. Ballots may be deposited until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day; 2) By dropping it off at any in-person vote center on Election Day until 8:00 p.m.; 3) By mailing it via USPS mail using the postage paid return envelope. Ballots must be postmarked no later than the day before Election Day.

Can I get a new mail-in ballot?
If your ballot is lost or damaged, you may request a new one by emailing or calling the Election Division no later than June 18.

I am leaving town on vacation. Can I get my ballot early?
By law mail-in ballots cannot be sent out earlier than 21 days before an election. Early voting locations are available for in-person voting starting two weeks before the election. You may request your ballot be mailed to an alternate address by filling out and returning this form.

Can I return a ballot for a friend or family member?
By law you are allowed to return a voted ballot for another person who needs assistance based on age, illness, or disability. You may also return a voted ballot for an individual who resides in your household. Returning ballots for individuals who don't meet these criteria can result in penalties. See §20A-3a-501-5a

How can I check my ballot status?
You can view the status of your mail-in ballot by visiting the State of Utah's website.

You may also sign up to receive electronic notifications of your ballot status by visiting the BallotTrax website.

Where can I vote in person?
Follow these links to view the locations of all Early Voting and Election Day Vote Centers.

What ID do I need to vote in person?
You can see a list of valid forms of identification here.

Can I still vote if I'm not registered?
If you would like to vote in the current election, but are not currently registered, you may register during polling hours at an Election Day vote center and cast a provisional ballot. To register and vote on Election Day, you must visit an Election Day vote center during polling hours and bring valid photo ID and proof of residency. A poll worker will assist you in registering to vote and casting a provisional ballot on an electronic voting machine.

How can I register to vote?
You may register to vote online, by returning a paper voter registration form to the Election Division, or you may register in-person at a vote center. More details are available on our Voter Registration page. State law requires that residents must have resided in the state of Utah for 30 day prior to registering.

How often do I need to register?
Once you have registered to vote in the State of Utah, you don't need to re-register unless your registration status changes. If you have moved outside of the state and returned, or your name has changed, or your registration has lapsed by not voting in the last two presidential elections you will need to re-register.

Am I eligible to vote in Utah?
To register you must: 1) be a citizen of the United States; 2) reside in Utah for at least 30 days immediately before the next election; 3) be at least 18 years old on or before the General Election. (Note: a 17-year-old may vote in a Primary Election if they will turn 18 years old on or before the date of the General Election.)

How can I become a poll watcher?
Any registered voter is welcome to observe the ballot counting process. To do so, you must check in at the Elections Office in room S1-200 at the Salt Lake County Government Center and have your voter registration verified. The ballot processing schedule indicates when processing will be taking place and which activities you will be able to observe.
