    I have never done early voting before but would like to this time. Do we need to be signed up in some way for early voting or can we just show up on those designated days and times?

      Hi Emily,

      You just have to be registered to vote and make sure to bring ID (Utah DL or two forms of ID proving Provo City residency). You can just show up on the day and time that works for you!
