Everything to know for Super Tuesday
Why should I register to vote?
Unless you’re registered, you won’t be able to vote! With so many deadlines before an election, it’s important to make sure you register as early as possible. Utah allows 16 and 17 year olds to pre-register to vote. 17 year olds who will be 18 by election day in November can vote in any primary elections that cycle.
What do I need to register to vote?
Go to vote.utah.gov, with your driver’s license number, current address, and the last four digits of your SSN.
When do I need to register to vote?
February 25th is the last day to request a mail-in ballot, and the last day to register online.
Should I register with a party?
For Super Tuesday primaries, only the Democratic and Republican parties are hosting elections. To vote in Republican primaries, you must declare your affiliation with the party on your voter registration form. To vote in Democratic primaries, you can be unaffiliated or affiliated.
If you are currently unaffiliated and would like to vote on March 3rd, you must vote in person.
What does it mean to make my record private?
Voteinfo.Utah.gov gives a great explanation of this,
“Utah law classifies most information in a voter registration record as a public record. Public records may be obtained and used by third parties. (Please note that voters’ Social Security numbers, driver license/ID numbers, email addresses, and the days of the voters’ birth dates are always classified as private records and are never provided to third parties. If a voter’s registration is classified as a public document, the month and year of a voter’s birth date may be provided to certain third parties such as political parties.)
If you would like to classify your voter registration record as a private record and restrict access to it, you can submit a new voter registration form indicating that you would like the record to be private OR submit a request form to your county clerk’s office.
If you classify your voter registration as a private record, please note that your information may still be publicly available in other public records and/or commercially available databases.”
How and where can I vote on March 3rd?
Utah County has largely switched over to mail-in ballots, but that doesn't mean you can't vote in person on Election Day!
March 3rd, bring a valid ID and visit your polling location between 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM. For southern Utah County, the closest polling locations are the Spanish Fork Senior Center and Payson City Building.
What’s going to be on the ballot?
On Super Tuesday, only candidates for president will be on the ballot. Depending on which party you cast a ballot for, the options will be different. A full list of candidates can be found here.
