Primary Election Day Guide

Happy Election Day! Due to COVID-19, today's election (Tuesday, June 30) will be unlike any other in state history.


Your voice matters! It's not too late to cast your ballot. 

Depending on what county you live in, Utahns who haven’t cast a ballot yet for the June 30 primary several options to still cast their ballot.

  1. Drive-thru voting. Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, Box Elder, Tooele and Iron counties are all offering drive-thru voting options.
  2. Mail your ballot. It MUST be postmarked by today, June 30. 
  3. Drop your ballot off at your county's ballot dropoff box(es).

Vote By Mail

Voters technically have until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday to get their ballots postmarked, but don't wait until the last minute. If you drops your ballot in a mailbox at 7:50pm, your ballot is most likely not going to be postmarked until 11:00 p.m. or, possibly, even the next morning.

Rather than mailing your ballot on Election Day, dropping your ballot off at a DropBox location is the best way to ensure your ballot is valid.

Some counties, like Salt Lake County, offer prepaid postage on your ballot envelope, and other counties do not. Your ballot will include instructions that will tell you whether or not you need a stamp.


If your county does not offer prepaid postage and you cannot obtain a stamp, your county may offer drop box locations. To view drop box locations in your county, enter your address at this link. Another option is to place your ballot in the mail without postage, and the Postal Service will still deliver your ballot to your county clerk’s office

Ballot Dropoff

Counties may offer a secure ballot DropBox locations where ballots can be deposited 24/7 until 8:00 pm on Tuesday, June 30. Check your county's ballot dropoff location below.

*If you cannot find your ballot DropBox, contact your contact clerk for information/assistance*
