Monday last day to register to vote in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY -- Election Day is right around the corner, and there are some major races on the ballot in Utah.

But for many Utahns who still aren't registered to vote, time runs out Monday.

It turns out, many people who need to re-register may not even know about it.

The Salt Lake County Clerk's Office is making the process easier on Monday.

You can still register online by visiting vote.utah.gov. There is also a speedy option for those who would rather go through the process in person.

The County Clerk's Office is offering what they call "an express, drive-thru voter registration" starting at 8 a.m. Monday.

Anyone eligible to vote can pull up to the County Government Center at 2001 South State Street in Salt Lake City and register from their car. The drive-thru is open until 5 p.m.

You can also register online, or in person at the County Clerk's Office and several other state agencies, including public colleges and universities.

You will not be able to vote early, but it you register today, you can still cast a ballot on Election Day.

If you have already registered, that is valid for life. However, there are some cases where you will need to re-register. For example, if you have moved, changed your name or want to affiliate yourself with a different political party, you have to register again before Election Day.
