CACHE COUNTY – Mail-in ballots for the upcoming Republican Primary Election will go out via the U.S. Postal Service to Cache County residents on Tuesday, June 4, according to a schedule of events posted on the website of County Clerk/Auditor Bryson Behm.

“Just as a heads up,” said Naomi Clark, one of Behm’s staff, “the June primary will only be for Republican seats, so ballots will only be sent out to registered Republicans.”

The GOP Primary will be held on Tuesday, June 25, but voters should be aware of other important dates on the way to that election.

Twenty-one drop boxes for voters to conveniently return their ballot will be unlocked at various locations throughout the county on Tuesday, June 4.

Those ballot return boxes will be located at the County Clerk’s office as well as in the towns and cities of Amalga, Clarkston, Cornish, Hyde Park, Hyrum, Lewiston, Mendon, Millville, Newton, Nibley, North Logan, Paradise, Providence, Richmond, River Heights, Smithfield, Trenton, Wellsville and on the campus of Utah State University.

For specific locations of those drop boxes and their hours of operation, residents can go online to https://www.cachecounty.gov/elections/ballotdropofflocations.html

The deadline for ballots returned via those drop boxes is 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25.

The deadline for the return of mail-in ballots will be Monday, June 24. Those ballots must be postmarked by the USPS by that date to be counted in the primary election.

Early in-person voting for the GOP primary will begin Tuesday, June 18 and continue through Friday, June 21. That voting will take place in the Multipurpose Room (Rm. 109) of the Cache County Administrative Center at 179 North Main Street in Logan.

In-person voting on the Primary Election Day (Tuesday, June 25) will take place from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Rooms 2 and 3 of the Cache County Event Center at the fairgrounds located at 490 South, 500 West in Logan.

Assuming all goes as planned, unofficial election results will be released by the Cache County Clerk’s office not later than Wednesday, June 26.

The audit of those primary election results is slated for Tuesday, July 2 and those results should be certified on Tuesday, July 9.
