The election process and right to vote are aspects of our government we all hold dear. We are given the ability to elect our peers to represent us in providing direction for the most basic services that we rely upon. We have the power to choose our direction by promoting and electing those who share common values. Relatively few votes can change the outcome of elections. Every vote counts!
The local government level is closest to home and therefore gives you direct influence on your elected officials. If you have questions about the election or running for office that are not answered here, please contact the City Recorder's office at 801-292-4486.
