By casting a ballot, voters can influence their national, state, and local politics. This ability is a critical aspect of a properly functioning democracy, and the state of Utah provides its citizens with many ways to vote. However, you can only take advantage of the voting opportunities the state of Utah provides if you know what they are and how they function.
