SALT LAKE CITY — The great thing about America is that anyone can change their mind, even when it comes to voting by mail or in person.

So what if a Utah voter with a mail ballot wants to head to their local polling location to vote?

In Utah, all registered voters are automatically mailed ballots. However, if someone prefers to vote in person, it is suggested that they bring their mail ballot to wherever they vote.

Bringing the mail ballot to a polling location is not required, but suggested, as those who do not surrender their ballots will be issued a provisional ballot which will only be counted after Election Day to ensure people do not vote twice.

If voters decide they want to stick with the mail ballot, make sure to have them postmarked by Nov. 2 to have your vote count.

Early in-person voting continues through Friday.
