SALT LAKE CITY — The state of Utah’s election website, vote.utah.gov, is the focus of a new television campaign promoting the site’s one-stop source for all things related to voting in November’s election.
The TV spots – featuring Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox as the “man on the street” – encourage all eligible Utah residents to educate themselves, register to vote and, ultimately, vote in the 2014 election. The campaign, which launched on Utah television stations this week, features the lieutenant governor interacting with Utah voters at locations around the Wasatch Front over the past several weeks.
“VOTE.UTAH.GOV is the best resource for potential and current voters and we make it our focus to get the word out every election year,” Cox said. “As you can see, we have fun promoting voter literacy and the benefits of our state’s website.”
As the chief election officer for the state, Cox oversees the state’s website. Visitors to the site can register to vote, find their polling location, review a personalized sample ballot and research candidates, judges and issues so they have no surprises on Election Day. Utahans can also visit the state’s website to find information about early voting, vote by-mail and related deadlines.
