This week is the last week for early voting. Taylorsville City Hall is a polling place and anyone who lives in Salt Lake County can vote at City Hall this week. The polls are open today, Tuesday, Sept. 6, until Friday, Sept. 9 from 10-4. If you miss out on voting this week, you will still be able to vote on Primary Election Day, which is Tues., Sept. 13.
We've had a few questions on who gets to vote. Every four years the council and mayor seats are up for election. Council districts 1, 2 and 3 are up this year. In two years Council district 4 and 5, and the Mayor will be up. This year, if you live west of 2700 West (and between 4700 - 5400 South, west of 2200 West), you will not need to vote in the Primary election next week.
For the final election on November 8th, only Districts 1, 2 and 3 will vote, unless Salt Lake County puts a bond on the ballot. We will let you know if that happens.
DISTRICT 1 MEET THE CANDIDATE
If you live in District 1 (approximately 2700 West to the Jordan River and 4700 South to 4100 South), you will get a chance to Meet the Candidates running for City Council!
