Ways to Register

  • Requires a valid Utah Driver License*
  • Update voter registration or party affiliation
  • Mark a ballot preference for partisan primary elections
*If you current address does not match the address on your Driver's License, update your UT Driver's License address online first at www.dld.utah.gov. There's no need to stand in line and it's free. The address printed on your UT Driver's License/ID card does not need to match your voter registration address. It may take 24-48 hours before the new address is active.
You may mail or submit in person the voter registration form, before the registration deadline, to the address shown below.
