Zollinger explains voter eligibility changes

LOGAN – Thanks to action by the Utah Legislature during its recent session, preregistered 17-year-olds who turn 18 on or before Election Day (Nov. 6) will be eligible to vote in the June Primary Election.

Cache County Clerk Jill Zollinger said this mean students ages 16 and 17 can preregister to vote and all eligible 17-year-olds will automatically receive their primary ballot through the mail.

“We send those out about a month prior to the election, so around the end of May or first of June we’ll be sending those ballots out,” she said. “Even though they haven’t turn 18 they can still register and we can send them a ballot.”

The primary will be held on Tuesday, June 26 and ballots will start arriving in voters’ mailboxes around June 7.
