Amanda Butterfield reporting A record number of Americans and Utahns are expected to vote tomorrow. This means you can expect long lines and a bit of a wait at the polls.

But there are a few things you can do to battle the ballot blues.

Here are some more important tips to remember:

Voting Tips

  1. Polls are open from 7 AM to 8 PM
  2. Expect long lines during peak hours
  3. Know correct precinct number before going to vote
  4. Newly registered voters must show identification Most of the polling areas are open between 7 AM and 8 PM, but check your county clerk's website for exact times. If you're voting during peak hours schedule enough time -- you may be in for a little bit of a wait. The best time to go is before 5 in the evening. And to avoid problems, know your correct precinct before going to vote. You won't be allowed to cast a ballot at the wrong location. And finally, newly registered voters should be prepared to show I-D, or proof of residency. Voters who have moved within the county and were previously registered to vote in the same county may vote with provisional ballot in their new precinct. Just make sure you have a photo I-D.. and proof of residency. Monday is also the last day of early voting with the "No-Excuse" absentee ballots.
