Vote By Mail: This year South Ogden City is conducting a Vote By Mail Municipal Election.   What does this mean for you as a voter?  It means approximately four weeks before Election Day, every registered voter in South Ogden City will receive a ballot in the mail.  Residents may either mail their ballot back or drop it off at a secure drop box inside City Hall.  However, we recognize a portion of the population feels it is important to participate in their democracy on Election Day in person; therefore a polling place will be provided at City Hall on Election Day as well.    

Why is the City holding a Vote By Mail Election?  First, statistics show voter participation more than doubles in Vote By Mail Elections.  Riverdale City’s 2013 Vote By Mail Election boasted 48% participation, up from 25% the previous municipal election year when a traditional “polling location” election was held.   Convenience, as well as options, encourages more residents to participate in a Vote By Mail Election.  Second, Vote By Mail Elections encourage a more engaged and informed electorate.   Voters receive their ballots almost a month before the election and are able to study the issues and/or candidates on the ballot before making an informed choice.  Third, this combined by mail and in person option will allow the County to prolong the life of their aging voting machines. The current machines are sorely outdated and are increasingly expensive to repair and maintain. 
We have listed some of the main reasons why By Mail Elections are a good idea.  Next month, we will try to address some of the concerns you might have with this type of election.  We will answer such questions as “How is my ballot kept secure once it is mailed?”, and “How is my right to a secret ballot maintained?”   If you have further questions, feel free to call City Recorder Leesa Kapetanov at 801-622-2709 during regular office hours.
