If I have moved since I last registered, do I need to re-register?

 

 

Yes. You will need to submit a new voter registration form. If you have moved from another state, be sure to fill out the portion of the form requesting "Name and Address on last Voter Registration." This ensures your last registration record will be cancelled.

What if I am a student in Utah and plan to return to my home state upon graduation?

 

 

Out of state students who register in Utah will give up their home state residency. Students planning to return to their home state after completing their studies in Utah may consider voting absentee in their home state as an alternative to registering to vote in Utah.

 

 

 

 

How do I obtain proof that I'm registered to vote?

 

 

If you have been asked to provide certified proof that you are registered to vote, our office can provide you with a Voter Certificate during regular business hours. We can issue you a certificate so long as you are registered at your current address in Utah County; there is a $5.00 fee.

If my name has changed since I last registered, do I need to re-register?

 

 

Yes. You will need to submit a new voter registration form.

Do I need to declare a political party in order to register?

 

 

Yes and No. Declaring a political party is optional unless:

  • You want to become a delegate for a particular party, then you must register for that party.
  • A particular party is having a closed election. You must register for that party if you want to vote in their closed election.

The party you declare is public information.

NOTE : You will have to contact the respective political party yourself to obtain information about political caucuses, dates and places.

How can I change political parties if I have already declared a party?

 

 

If you want to change political parties, you can fill out another voter registration form declaring the new party.


If I submit a voter registration form, how will I know if I am registered to vote?

 

 

You may check your voter registration status online by visiting the State Elections web site or you may contact the Utah County Elections Office at (801) 851 - 8128.

 

If you are not qualified or the information on your form is incomplete, your application will be returned to you with instructions for completion. (For this reason it is a good idea to include your daytime telephone number on your registration form).
