Sample Ballot
IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Due to a Municipal Candidate withdrawing from the Election (Alan Smoot), the Lindon City Primary Election has been cancelled. Because the Candidate withdrew after ballots had been sent to the printers, the municipal race still appears on your ballot.  Because the City Primary has been cancelled no votes cast in these races will be counted. The 3rd Congressional District Primary Election is still being held. Please be sure to vote on this portion of the ballot. Thanks! The Voter Service Center is open from 7 am to 8 pm on Primary Election day, August 15, 2017. 


CANDIDATES WHO HAVE DECLARED CANDIDACY FOR LINDON CITY OFFICE:


Notice: Candidate Alan Smoot has officially withdrawn from the Lindon City Municipal Election (4-year term city council).  Because of the withdrawal of Mr. Smoot, Lindon City will NOT be holding a Primary Election on August 15, 2017 for the two (2) open City Council seats (4 year-term) which means all four candidates running for the 4-year term seats will move on to the General Election to be held on November 7th.  A Primary is not necessary for the one (1) open 2 year–term City Council seat. However, the city will still be required to have a “Voter Service Center” for both the Primary and General Elections due to the 3rd Congressional Special Election to fill the seat vacated by Jason Chaffetz.

Lindon City to Conduct Vote by Mail for 2017 Municipal Election

The Lindon City Council recently voted to authorize Utah County to conduct the 2017 Primary and General Municipal Elections by using Vote by Mail, a system where all registered voters use absentee (Vote by Mail) ballots to vote.

Vote-by-Mail Information

The 2017 Primary and General Municipal Elections will be conducted using Vote by Mail. Each registered voter will be mailed a ballot and instructions for returning the ballot. Ballots for the Primary Election will be mailed out by Tuesday, July 25; and ballots for the General Election will be mailed out by Tuesday, October 17. Ballots must either be returned by mail and clearly postmarked before Election Day or placed in the ballot box at the Lindon City Community Center, 25 North Main Street, Lindon, by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. Ballots cannot and will not be forwarded by the postal service. All ballots that are determined undeliverable are returned to the County Clerk's office. If you have not received your ballot within two weeks after they are mailed, please call the Utah County Clerks Elections Division office at 801-851-8109 ex 5.

Voters will have the convenience and satisfaction of voting in the comfort of their homes where they can research those candidates running for election. Once the ballot has been filled out and placed in the secure envelope, it can be mailed back to the County for processing. For those who prefer to bypass the mail and submit their ballots in person, they may securely do so at either the County or the Lindon City Recorder’s Office. Additionally, votes may be cast in person by provisional ballot at Lindon City Community Center on Election Day. 

Once the County has received the ballot, signatures are checked and verified before the ballot is counted. If the ballot cannot be verified it is passed to another team member before it is rejected. If a voter’s signature cannot be verified, the voter will be contacted and can correct the error prior to the canvas. Additionally, the Lieutenant Governor’s Office is required to do an audit of the clerk’s signature verification process. The ballot is not removed from the envelope until the signature has been verified, maintaining the secrecy of the ballot. Every paper ballot is treated with great care and at no time is handled by a single person as there is always a second set of eyes overseeing the processing of submitted ballots.
