Early Voting in Davis County, Utah

Standing by an early voting line outside the Layton Library.

For the information on voting in the current elections go to Vote.Utah.Gov.

I am accustomed to voting early. The process is not at all rickety and is rather simple. A few days ago I went to Leave Your Print to find a list of the times and locations where I could vote early. Here are all the remaining times left to early vote in Davis County:

I chose Friday morning at the Layton Library to vote. Before leaving I printed a sample ballot from the State of Utah’s website. After entering your details you will get a web page that looks like this with a link to your personalized ballot:

I printed my ballot and marked how I would vote. Yesterday a friend showed me an interesting point about Constitutional Amendment E. This is how it reads:

Shall the Utah Constitution be amended to authorize the state to invest money in the newly issued stock or bonds of private companies if the money comes from the State School Fund or from land granted to the state by the federal government, as an exception to a general rule prohibiting those investments?

School funds invested in the stock market? I don’t want those funds invested in stocks or bonds so I will be voting no on this amendment.

Jill and I both have the day off work so we show up to vote at the Layton Library. We had fifteen minutes to wait and needed to show I.D. Jill asked if she could take a photograph of me voting but she was told no. There was a worker walking up and down the line answering questions. Two workers with laptops were checking names and two more workers were writing the details in a book for voters to sign. Then we got our voting cards to use in one of the ten Diebold machines. For the first time ever I wrote in a candidate for president. It was simple to do. After we were finished we each got our “I VOTED” sticker.
Rickety signature.

Update

28 Mar 2009 Fortunately Amendment E was defeated.

Comments

  1. You will need to explain yourself better, at least for me.

  2. Ritualistic voting is what I’d call it.

  3. Mark and I voted on Friday too. We went to the Bountiful library. The parking lot was totally packed! The line was really long. I heard one lady say “so much for not waiting in long lines.” We waited about 20 minutes but it seemed like the line moved pretty quickly.

  4. Our line moved fast also. There is an interesting story about internet voting at Popular Mechanics.

  5. Hey, thanks for all the info and the great example. Hopefully I’ll get to the polls this week – every vote counts, they say…

  6. I’m glad the information helped. I went with my wife at 9am and the lines were not too long. If you ever want to quadruple the number of visitors to your blog, write a post about early voting.

  7. stock market says:

    School funds in the stock market doesn’t sound like a good idea IMO.

  8. It took me two years, but I am finally commenting on the irony of Jill’s shirt next to the American Flag at the early voting polls. Maybe not ironic, but somewhat worth a chuckle. Go Canada!
