Needed voter info for the polls

Utah requires valid identification to vote. The most common form of ID is a driver’s license, but what if you don’t have one?

Any one of the following forms of ID are also acceptable:

  • A valid ID card issued by the state or a branch, department, or agency of the United States.
  • A valid Utah permit to carry a concealed weapon.
  • A valid United States passport.
  • A valid tribal ID card, whether or not the card includes a photograph of the voter.

Alternatively, any two forms of ID that display the voter’s name and provides evidence that the voter resides in the voting precinct are also acceptable, and there are others.

    Iron county voters, before you vote yes for a increase in your property tax which will be forever be sure you know about the huge tax grab the ‘our schools now’ group wants. Right now schools are receiving 67% of all state funds. The last state legislature added over ONE TRILLION dollars for the schools, yet they want more! It’s time to be informed before you vote and know it’s up to you to say NO MORE.
