The 2017 Santaquin City Municipal Election will be “Vote by Mail” (VBM) administered by the Utah County Elections Office

While it is not Utah County’s responsibility to administer Municipal Elections, the County Elections Office (County) has offered to conduct VBM for all municipalities in the County that desire to participate. The County can offer significant savings for this kind of election as they qualify for a reduced, bulk rate mailing. Several counties throughout the state offer this same service. All ‘active’, registered voters will receive a ballot mailed by the Elections Office three weeks before the election. An active voter is a voter that has voted at least once in the last four years. Inactive voters will need to update their voter registration to receive a ballot in the mail. The fastest way to update your information is in person at the Utah County Elections Office in Provo or online at the following link:

Updates can also be made by mailing a registration form to:
Utah County Clerk, Elections Office,
100 East Center Street, Rm 3100
Provo, Utah 84606

Please be aware that any updates made at the Department of Motor Vehicles may take a while to process and should be done well in advance of the election. If you have moved, you will need to update your address in order to receive a ballot in the mail. Ballots will not be forwarded. Voters will have the convenience and satisfaction of voting in the comfort of their homes where they can research those candidates running for election. Once the ballot has been filled out and placed in the secure envelope, it can be mailed back to the County for processing. For those who prefer to bypass the mail and submit their ballots in person, they may securely do so at either at the Utah County Elections Office or the Santaquin City Recorder’s Office.
