Dates and deadlines for the upcoming election

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) – In Utah 22 counties are participating in vote by mail for this weeks General Election. 

Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen stops by Inside Utah Politics to speak about what voters need to know if they plan on casting that ballot by mail. 

"If you're planning to return your ballot by mail you need to have it post marked by the day before election day, and it does need to be post marked." Swensen said. 

For those still holding onto their mail in ballots until Monday, Swensen says don't drop it in the mail.

"Dropping it in a drop box would be a safer bet. We have 17 drop boxes throughout Salt Lake County and those are open until 8 pm on election night." Said Swensen. 

She also talks about the affidavit that all voters must sign and it's importance, as well as election night returns. 

There will be a two week canvassing period following Election Day. The date of the Board of Canvassers meeting will be held on November 21, 2017.
