UTAH Voter ID Information

Registered Utah voters must show ID at the polls to vote. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order for your ballot to count, you must present a valid voter ID to the county clerk or an election officer by the close of business the second business day after the election.
