Washington County in Utah will conduct its first election with all mail-in ballots on November 6.
The Spectrum newspaper reports that 75,000 registered voters in Southern Utah will see ballots in their mailboxes in mid-October.
The county will still run six polling places on Election Day for people who prefer to cast their ballot in person. The majority of counties in Utah already conduct their elections by mail, a change proponents say reduces the cost of running elections and increases voter turnout by letting people research the issues and mail back their ballots on their own schedules.
Washington County will likely see a voter-turnout bump similar to other Utah counties that have already made the switch.
Utah election officials say they keep the ballots safe by cross-checking voter signatures with state identification records and performing random audits.
