A Message to Utah Voters

Your vote this fall is critically important to Utah! We have a chance to flip dozens of seats STATEWIDE this year but we need your help. We have several races where you can make a difference up and down the ballot, from Box Elder to San Juan County. This year will see huge voter turnout numbers with multiple ballot initiatives focusing where the current republican dominated legislature has failed us, including expanded medicaid, gerrymandering, and medical marijuana. For more information about these elections, please check out Ballotpedia.

Even if you voted from abroad in the past, if you haven't yet requested your ballot this year, you still need to do so to make sure you can vote. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Utah.

On behalf of the Utah Democratic Party I thank you for your commitment to voting!

In solidarity,
Daisy Thomas
Utah Democratic Party Chair


Your deadlines are coming up. Don't forget:

REGISTER to vote from abroad by Tuesday, October 9. Your registration form may be sent by email, fax or postal mail, and it will also request your ballot. We recommend registering by email or fax.


REQUEST your overseas absentee ballot by Tuesday, October 30. Your request form may be sent by email, fax or postal mail. We recommend sending your request form by email or fax and having your ballot delivered to you by email.


RETURN your ballot to your local election office by email or fax by Tuesday, November 6, 8 pm MST. If you return your ballot by postal mail, it must be sent by Monday, November 5 and received by Monday, November 19.


All overseas voters may vote in elections for federal offices (US House and US Senate races). Overseas voters who indicate they “intend to return” may also vote in Utah state elections.

Note: When you fill in your ballot request form, be aware that selecting “I intend to return” rather than “my return is uncertain” may contribute towards establishing yourself as a tax resident in your voting state. Because the legal requirements to establish "residence" or "domicile" for tax purposes are determined by state law and the specific facts of your life, before you note that you intend to return on your form you may consider seeking advice on these matters from your tax professional.
