We know it’s important, but heading to the polls isn’t always convenient.
Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen explains why early voting is something every voter should consider.
For the most convenient voting experience this General Election, vote early at a location near you Oct. 23-Nov. 2, and avoid long lines on Election Day. You can vote early this General Election and choose from 21 early voting locations in Salt Lake County that work for your schedule.
Most early voting locations are open weekdays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and several locations offer extended hours until 7 p.m. The Salt Lake County Government Building will accommodate voters on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Voting early allows you to plan which day and time is best for you to vote.
Voting early eliminates the hassle of finding time to vote on Election Day, especially if something unexpected comes up (e.g., weather, illness, working late, etc.).
Voting early is a great option for those voters who have already decided who to vote for and don’t want to wait until the last minute to vote on a crowded Election Day.
Look for your polling location notice in the mail on Oct. 22, which includes your Election Day polling location for your precinct, early voting locations and hours, and vote-by-mail details.
