Today’s the day! All registered voters will have their ballots mailed out today, October 17th. In the next couple of days you should see your ballots in the mail – so keep your eyes out. Voters then can make their choices and mail them back. No standing in line. No waiting. No pressure. Ballots must be postmarked on or before Monday, November 6, 2017. A drop box will also be available at the Provo City Center lobby for anyone wishing to hand deliver their completed mail-in ballot in the signed and sealed envelope.
Those who are uncertain about whether their registration status is current can check online at vote.utah.gov. If you have moved, you need to ensure your address is up to date. If you are not registered, you can get a registration form from the Utah County Clerk’s Office at 100 E Center Street or register online at vote.utah.gov by October 31st. Call 801-852-6524 with questions.
On Election Day, a voter service center will be set up at the Provo Recreation Center (320 W. 500 North) from 7 a.m. through 8 p.m. Those who do not receive a ballot in the mail or who lose it can visit the service center and cast a provisional ballot. (Bring a current ID or two items bearing their current address.) A drop box will also be available at the voter service center for anyone wishing to hand deliver their completed mail-in ballot in the signed and sealed envelope.
Meet the Candidates
Sherrie Hall Everett and Michelle Kaufusi emerged from the primary election as the candidates vying for the city’s top office in the Municipal General Election, making it possible for Provo to have its first-ever female mayor.
For City Council positions, voters can pick between George Handley and David Clark for District 2; between David Harding and Tinesha Zandamela for District 5 and Dave Sewell and Wesley Marriott for the citywide seat.
The 2017 Municipal Election is also an opportunity to take part in shaping a democratic future, a chance to speak up. I urge every Provo resident to vote. It’s important that every one of us do so. So lets all vote!
