Get Out And Vote!

A vote is your voice!

For your voice to be heard, you must register to vote. It is your right and your responsibility.

Our elected officials determine much concerning our quality of life: taxes, economic regulation, and the educational system. Don’t let someone else choose your elected officials for you. The biggest election issues often directly effect the youth and will impact life for years to come. The only way democracy works is if citizens, young and old, are active participants.

What are the requirements?
  • You must be at least 18 years old on or before the next election.
  • You must be a citizen of the United States.

  • You must be a resident of Utah* for at least 30 days before the election.
    *An applicant is considered a resident of Utah if they have their principal place of residence within Utah and intends to continue to reside within Utah indefinitely.

The Utah State Government has made it SO easy for us to vote, there really isn't any excuse NOT to!
  • Worried about having to find childcare for your kids while you go and vote? Now you don't have to! VOTE BY MAIL! You don't even have to GO somewhere to register to vote by mail! CLICK HERE for the forms to fill out and mail in.

I have been voting via mail for the past two years, and LOVE it! I can do it in the privacy of my own home, at my own time, and I don't need to worry about finding somebody to sit with my kids while I go and vote!
