Elections & Voting

Transparency and resident engagement are two important pillars of South Salt Lake's government; as a result, we strive to create a clear and intuitive election process and encourage all our residents to participate!

How It Works

South Salt Lake elections are conducted by the Salt Lake County Elections Division. Ballots include candidates for all levels of government and all positions that are holding an election. Information on how to vote and election results can be found on the Salt Lake County Elections Division website.

Vote by Mail

All South Salt Lake elections have a vote-by-mail option. Every eligible, active voter will be mailed a ballot at least three weeks prior to Election Day (an active voter is a voter that has voted at least once in the last four years).

Ballots are not forwarded. However, if a ballot is returned as "undeliverable" with a forwarding address within Salt Lake County, the Salt Lake County Clerk's Election Division will spoil the returned ballot, update the address, and send a new ballot for their new precinct.

The Salt Lake County Election Division will mail ballots weekly to newly registered voters or to those voters who have moved and updated their address. Ballots will be mailed daily the week prior to Election Day.

We have contracted with Salt Lake County to assist with our voting and elections process.
