(KCPW News) Early voting at 15 satellite locations in Salt Lake County will wrap up tonight, with turnout so far reaching 100,000. County Clerk Sherrie Swensen says the turnout is already four times larger than in previous elections.
"People are getting used to the idea of early voting," Swensen says. "It's becoming more familiar to them. They realize that it's not just for people who cannot get to their polling place on Election Day, and that it's a convenient option for everyone."
All satellite locations close at 5 p.m. tonight. But voting continues at the county government center at 2100 South and State Street until Monday. And Swensen will also open the county offices tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. She says voters can expect long lines if they wait until Election Day, especially in the morning and evening. Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Monday, November 3rd, or be dropped off at any polling location by Election Day. Click here for more information.
