Voter ID in Utah


What is your plan for voting?

Voter ID rules are different based on how you decide to cast your ballot.



Voting Remotely

Every registered voter in Utah automatically gets a mail ballot sent to the address in their voter registration. You don’t have to ask for it, and you don’t need a special reason to vote by mail.

Voters with disabilities can ask their county clerk to receive and return their ballots using email or fax.  Utah County voters may be able to vote using a mobile app.

All voters must provide a copy of their unexpired Utah driver’s license or ID the first time they are voting in state.

After your first election, you will need to give the number from your Utah driver’s license or ID, your voter ID number, or the last four digits of your Social Security number.



Voting in Person

If you decide to vote in person, you will be asked to show an acceptable ID.

The first time you vote in an Utah election, you need to show an unexpired Utah driver’s license or ID card. 

After your first election, you must show just ONE unexpired ID with your name and photo on it. This can be:

  • Utah driver license or IDS
  • ID card issued by US government or Utah
  • Utah concealed carry permit
  • US passport
  • US military ID card
  • Tribal ID card, Bureau of Indian Affairs card, or tribal treaty card (does not require a photo)

If you don’t have any of those IDs, you can provide TWO forms of ID. One ID should verify your identity and one should confirm your current address. These can include: 

  • Medicaid or Medicare or Electronic Benefits Transfer card
  • Unexpired ID issued by institution of higher education in Utah
  • Utility bill dated within 90 days of election
  • Bank or other financial account statement
  • Certified birth certificate
  • Social Security card
  • Check issued by Utah or U.S. government
  • Unexpired Utah hunting or fishing license
  • Paycheck
  • Certified naturalization documents
  • Unexpired license issued by an authorized agency of US
  • Certified court records: adoption or name change
  • Unexpired ID card issued by Utah local government or employer
  • Unexpired Utah vehicle registration
