SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – If you did not get your mail-in ballot to a mailbox by 5 p.m. Monday, your only options for voting in the 2020 general election are to drop off your mail-in ballot or vote in-person.

Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 2.

Utahns can drop off their mail-in ballot at a polling site or at specially marked drive-up or walk-up boxes by 8 p.m. Tuesday night.

You can also vote in-person; polls close at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

All drop off locations, as well as in-person voting locations, can be found online here.

The website allows you to type in your address for a list of all the locations where you can drop off your mail-in ballot or vote in person.

In order to vote in Utah, you need a valid voter ID.

If you are not already registered to vote and are voting with a provisional ballot, you will need to show two acceptable forms of ID: one that verifies identity and one for proof of residence.

  • Valid Utah driver license
  • Valid ID card issued by the state of Utah or the U.S. Government
