Election Day is Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Utah mails a ballot to every active registered voter a few weeks before the election. Keep an eye on the mailbox, and be sure to mail it back or drop it in a drop-box before Election Day! You can also vote in person if you prefer to do so. Utah offers early voting.
