Davis County offers election security town hall and tour
FARMINGTON, Utah — With the Utah Legislature addressing voter confidence, and with far too little voter fraud discovered to make a difference in the 2020 election, Davis County officials are continuing efforts to be transparent in its election process.
The county is holding a series of election integrity events, including one Wednesday night, to provide community members information about the election process including “the many layers of safeguards that make Utah’s elections secure.”
Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. the county is holding a town hall on the third floor of the Davis County Administration Building at 61 S., Main Street in Farmington. The event is free and does not require registration.
“Elections in Utah are transparent and secure,” an invitation from the county stated in a flyer for the March 30 meeting.
Last week Utah Gov. Spencer Cox signed H.B. 313 that amended Utah election laws to assist voter confidence and election security.
“Attendees will learn about voter registration, how ballots are processed and tabulated, strategies that ensure election security, and more. A tour of the County’s Elections Center is included. Discussion is encouraged during these interactive sessions, and no questions about elections are off limits,” the county said in a release.
Future secure election events are scheduled for April 20, May 18, June 15, July 13, Aug. 24, Sept. 14, Oct. 12, Nov. 30 and Dec. 14.
