Democracy is as strong as its people. Vote tomorrow, June 28, 2016, for your local government. Whether you’re a donkey, elephant, or a nonpartisan (no animal analogy available), you can exercise your civic duty, and right, to influence your community.
Here are a few things to be aware of:
- Primary elections are not presidential elections. You are only voting for the Governor of Utah, Education Chairmen, and other local government positions.
- Make sure you are registered to vote. You can check by contacting your county building.
- You can only vote in your precinct. A precinct is just a fancy word for neighborhood. Do not think that you can vote at any polling station. Check with the county to find out where you vote based upon your residential address.
- The polls are open from 7am-8pm.
- Make sure you have adequate ID. A drivers license, passport, government issued I.D. cards, and concealed carry permits are perfect examples of identification. If you bring other forms, such as a student ID, you may need to bring another form of identification.
