County clerks across Utah started dropping ballots in the mail today. RadioACTive got an update from Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen, who said to make sure your mail-in ballot is postmarked by Nov. 1, 2021! If not, drop it off at one of the 20+ vote centers in the county on Election Day.
Early voting will take place at all other locations from October 26th to the 29th.
Nov. 2: General Election Day. If you didn't get your ballot post-marked yesterday, take it to a drop-off location in your county before polls close at 8:00 p.m. this evening.
