Voter Registration in UtahPage Overview
Registering to vote is easy and empowers you to have as much say as anyone else about your laws and leaders―countywide, statewide, and at the federal level.
When you apply for a driver license in Utah, you will be offered the opportunity to register to vote. The Utah Driver License Division (DLD) provides registration forms as a convenience for those who want to participate in the democratic process.
You can also register to vote in several other ways, including online and by mail. Read below for more information about voter registration, including forms and deadlines.
Most adults may vote, with these limitations:
- You must be a U.S. citizen.
- You must be 18 years old on or before the next election.
- Imprisoned felons lose their right to vote until they are paroled, put on probation, or serve their time.
You can complete your Utah voter registration online, by mail, or in person. If you are eligible to vote, your clerk will then mail you a voter registration card that tells you where your polling station is (you must vote at your assigned polling station).
You can register to vote online as long as you have a Utah driver's license or ID card. Your address must also be current and up-to-date with the DLD. If you need to update your address, see our page Changing Your Address in Utah for more information.
Visit the Online Voter Registration website. You'll need to submit your registration at least 7 days before the next election you wish to participate in.
Additionally, you can register to vote at your local county clerk's office, public colleges or universities, and other approved locations. Make sure to register at least 30 days before the election in order to vote.
If you move or change your name, simply complete a new voter registration form. You may do the same if you change your party affiliation―though you do not need to declare a party affiliation in order to vote.
