Summit County’s six municipalities will hold elections for mayor and two council seats this fall. The candidate filing window opens June 1 and runs through June 7.
Kellie Robinson is the interim Summit County Clerk replacing Kent Jones, who retired last month. In addition to the municipal seats, there are special service positions that will be on the ballot.
“So, something that would be in effect in Park City would be the Snyderville Basin Reclamation District Board. Service areas three out in the Basin also has an election this year. And then the South Summit Fire District.”
The election will be conducted by mail and there will be limited ballot boxes on election day. Robinson said the cost of an election covered by the entity holding the election.
“We do have kind of a set rate with the city that we, you know, build them for after the election do it off of how many voters if there's, you know, 6,000 voters in Park City, then that's what we would build them for, but we charge them $1.75 per ballot, and that just covers, you know our printing costs, envelope, you know, anything that does programming the ballots that type of stuff.”
Kamas, Coalville, Francis, Henefer, Oakley and Park City residents will be voting in the municipal elections on Nov. 2.
If more than two people were to file for the same seat, a primary runoff will be held Aug. 10. Registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail. The voter registration deadline is Friday, July 30 at 5 p.m. at the Summit County clerk's office. However, voter registration is allowed during early voting and on election day. Two forms of ID are required.
Candidates must be residents of the town for the past 12 months, a U.S. citizen and a registered voter to run for office.
