Summit County Sends Out 2019 November Ballots
Ballots are being mailed this week for this year’s Summit County elections. And not all the major decisions before voters involve City Council races.
Deputy County Clerk Kellie Robinson said they have mailed out close to 13,000 ballots.
They predict a voter turnout of around 40 percent. That is better than the usual levels for an off-year election, which run between 15-25 percent.
Although this is generally the year for municipal balloting in Utah, only two cities in the county need to hold council races—Park City and Oakley. But Robinson noted there is an election for the South Summit Fire District. South Summit School District is asking voters to approve an $87 million bond for a new high school and other items. And the North Summit Recreation District is asking its patrons for taxing authority.
Robinson said the county will have early voting periods, from October 22nd to the 25th, and the 29th to November 1st.
If you are voting by mail, your ballot will have to be postmarked by November 4th, the day before the general election.
You can also drop off your ballot, by 8 p.m. of Election Day. The county will have drop boxes at the Marsac Building in Park City, at the Park City Market at Snow Creek, Oakley City Hall, the county services building at Kamas, and Coalville City Hall.
Robinson added there are still chances to register to vote.
“They can register on-line or in person through October 29th. They can go to “vote.utah.gov” and check their registration. Or if they need to register, they can go there also. There is also registration on Election Day. It’s treated as a provisional, so we can verify information. And if everything verifies, we would go ahead and count that.”
And if you wish to vote absentee, you can fill out a form on the County Clerk’s website.
