SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Office of Elections is reminding Utahns they don't need to request a mail-in ballot ahead of the upcoming election.

The office said Monday that the U.S. Postal Service is sending out postcards advising voters to request a mail-in ballot at least 15 days before Election Day. But in Utah, all active registered voters will receive their ballot in the mail automatically.

The announcement said county clerks will mail out ballots during the week of Oct. 13. The general election will take place Nov. 3.

Utahns can cast their ballots by mail, at a ballot drop box, at an in-person early voting location, or at a voting center on Election Day.

Voters must be registered by 5 p.m. on Oct. 23 to automatically receive a ballot in the mail.
