When, Where And How To Vote In The Summit County General Election
The Nov. 5 general election is Tuesday. The Summit County Clerk’s office has sent out 13,000 ballots for registered voters to vote by mail.
Both Park City and Oakley are holding elections for city council. There’s also an election for South Summit Fire District as well as a South Summit School District bond for $87 million to fund a new high school and other items. And North Summit Recreation District is asking its patrons for taxing authority.
If voting by mail, ballots must be postmarked by Monday, Nov. 4, the day before the election.
Voters can also drop off their ballots until 8 p.m. on Election Day at several ballot drop boxes around the county. Drop boxes are located at the Marsac Building in Park City; the Park City Market at Snow Creek; Oakley City Hall; the county services building in Kamas; and Coalville City Hall.
Those who wish to vote but haven’t yet registered need to head to a voting assistance center on Tuesday for same-day registration and voting. Those ballots will be treated as provisional until the clerk verifies the voter’s information and eligibility. A photo I.D. and proof of residency are required to vote. Voting assistance centers are open 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. and are located at Coalville City Hall; the Kamas Services Building; Oakley City Hall; and the Park City Municipal Building.
Summit County Deputy Clerk Kellie Robinson says the county expects a voter turnout of around 40%, which is higher than usual levels for an off-year election.
