From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Utah state elections in 2020 will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Aside from its presidential primaries held on March 3, its primary elections will be held on June 30, 2020.[1]

In addition to the U.S. presidential race, Utah voters will elect the Governor of Utah, 9 seats of its Board of Education, four of Utah's other executive officers, all of its seats to the House of Representatives, all of the seats of the Utah House of Representatives, and 15 of 29 seats in the Utah State Senate. Neither of the state's two U.S. Senate seats are up for election this year, but there are also seven ballot measures which will be voted on.[1]
