To register for the November 21, 2023 General Election, your voter registration must be received by your county clerk by 5:00 pm on November 13th, 2023. You can register to vote using one of the methods below:
- Registering with a paper form. Fill out a paper registration form and mail or email a scanned copy to your county clerk. You can find your county clerk’s contact information at this link.
- Registering online at the website voter.utah.gov. A valid Utah driver license or valid Utah ID is required.
- Registering in-person at your county clerk’s office. Please note that public access to your county clerk’s office may be restricted due to COVID-19 precautions. Contact your county clerk’s office before visiting.
If you miss the November 13th, 2023 registration deadline, you can register to vote at an early voting location or an Election Day voting location. However, you will need to present two forms of identification at the voting location to register.
You must meet certain requirements to register to vote in Utah. You must be:
- A U.S. Citizen;
- A resident of Utah for at least 30 days before the election; and
- 18 years old on or before the day of the election.
If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can pre-register to vote. If you pre-register, you will automatically be registered to vote when you turn 18 years old.
You are considered a resident of Utah if your principal place of residence is in the state and you have the intention of making your residence here permanent or indefinite. If you have additional questions, please contact your county clerk.
For voter registration purposes, you are required to be a resident for 30 days immediately prior to election day
If you are a convicted felon, you can register and vote unless you are currently serving a jail or prison sentence. Your voting rights are automatically restored when you are granted parole, sentenced to probation, or successfully complete your term of incarceration. You are eligible to register and vote if you are detained and awaiting trial and have not yet been convicted of a felony.
You should register at the address that you consider your permanent residence. This may be your home address or your current address at school. If you are a resident of Utah and attending school away from home, you can request a mail ballot to be sent to your current address. Visit this page for more information about requesting a mail ballot.
