The Washington County Clerk’s Office has made a change in how registered voters will be casting their ballots in all future county elections. Washington County will be conducting its elections mainly By Mail. Starting with the upcoming November 6, 2018 election, eligible registered voters will be receiving their ballots in the mail. In addition, Washington County will have 6 to 7 Vote Centers available on Election Day to assist voters from 7am to 8pm. Each vote center will offer accommodations for voters who have motor or visual difficulties.
(This decision by the county will not change any cities, towns or special service districts ability to administer their municipal elections as they see fit.)
By Mail voters will be receiving their ballots 3 weeks before each Election Day. Eligible registered voters in Washington County do not need to request a ballot to be mailed to them, one will be mailed to their residential or mailing address automatically.
NOTE: The Post Office cannot “Forward” ballots. In the event that a resident will be traveling or will be away from their residence, the registered voter can go to www.vote.utah.gov and fill out an absentee ballot request. By filling out this absentee ballot request the resident will be able to tell us where to mail their ballot for each individual election.
To ensure that voters get their ballot quickly, if you have moved or have had a mailing address change, please go to www.vote.utah.gov and re-register to vote with your current residential and or mailing address.
Any voter who wishes to opt out of receiving a By Mail ballot must do so in writing. Opt out letters must be submitted to:
Washington County Clerk’s Office 197 East Tabernacle St. George, UT 84770-3443 (Google Maps)
Vote Center locations will be announced at a later time.
